Your Association has been working diligently over the last several years to ensure the role of the agent in the health insurance distribution system. At both the State and National level we have been successful in either getting legislation passed, or working with the agencies charged with developing the rules to implement the law, to "soften" the impact of the PPACA legislation for our clients.
As we move toward the second enrollment period keep in mind that, as a member of this association, you are among the best trained in the business. You have the training and the tools necessary to make the best recommendations for your clients whether they are individuals or employer groups. Your local chapters are working diligently to offer professional development courses that will keep you abreast of changes as they occur. Your National chapter will continue to distribute information on a regular basis as well. Take advantage of all the tools offered and encourage the agents and brokers that you work with to do the same, so that we will continue to be viewed as the most valued resource for information.
