UBA offers Free Webinar: NAHU Executive VP and CEO to Discuss Health Reform Bills

Presentation to Focus on Challenges Facing Employers

Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) August 5, 2009 -- United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in partnership with the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), is sponsoring a special free webinar at 1 p.m. EDT Thursday, Aug. 13, regarding what's happening now in the national health care reform debate.

Janet Trautwein, CEO of NAHU, will give participants an insider's view of the bills being pondered by the U.S. House and Senate and will discuss how current proposals could impose new government fees and affect employers' ability to choose a quality health care plan. UBA Board Member Ron Dutton will introduce Ms.Trautwein, who, along with the UBA-NAHU Liaison Committee, has been very active in educating legislators about the opinions and needs of benefits advisors and their clients regarding the health care reform debate. "Congress is actively considering legislation that could impact every person in America. The bills being considered could dramatically increase the cost of employer health plans and potential new taxes could impact their ability to hire new employees and keep the ones they have. The time for action could not be more critical," said Ms. Trautwein.

Every employer and employee in America could be directly affected by the changes being debated on Capitol Hill. Employers should stay engaged with members of Congress during August and encourage their associates and peers to voice their concerns. Do not be left in the dark or miss your chance to join the health care debate. The online presentation will allow attendees to ask questions and get answers in real time. Phone-only access will also be available, but Internet viewing is recommended. For more information or to sign up for this important event, please visit the home page of or click here to register.
