Lewisville, TX (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
The Brokerage, Inc., the Texas-based nationally-recognized leader in the Medicare marketplace for over three and a half decades, continues comprehensive training with insurance agents to prepare them for the commencement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2014.
Since April of 2013, The Brokerage, Inc.’s President, Mike Smith, has trained over 1,500 agents on topics surrounding the Affordable Care Act, such as tax implications, subsidies and exchanges, public versus private exchange plans, tax credits for employers, and the initial enrollment period.
Smith discusses the importance of The Brokerage, Inc.’s training: “Many different types of consumers will look to insurance agents in this period of change. It is imperative that agents are up-to-date and knowledgeable about what precisely the Affordable Care Act means as far as cost, coverage and availability.”
Insurance agents who attend The Brokerage, Inc.’s workshop on health care reform receive information on how the Affordable Care Act is currently affecting and will affect health insurance agents, carriers, employers and consumers in the U.S. The course answers pertinent, timely questions that insurance agents have: How can the insurance agent successfully adjust to the ACA market? How have insurance agents’ commissions been affected thus far? What opportunities does this period of change have to offer? What is the latest information about the Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP)? The Brokerage, Inc. also covers Medicaid and Medicare at their workshops. Through their Medicare training, they discuss various statistics and possible effects of the new legislation in 2014. Continuing education credits may be offered to insurance agents who attend The Brokerage Inc.’s workshops.
“Our training programs are comprehensive, and I believe that’s why they’ve been so successful for the insurance agents,” Smith states. “We will continue with our training initiatives on the Affordable Care Act throughout 2013.”
Enrollment in the Affordable Care Act is available for consumers as early as October 1, 2013.
