Fort Collins, Colorado (PRWEB) May 17, 2010 -- With so many people wondering what effect the new healthcare bill will have on their health insurance coverage, Wiley P. Long, nationally recognized health insurance expert and President of the HSA for America group of insurance companies has announced a special telephone seminar to be held on Friday, May 21, 2010 at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. The presentation will be followed by an open question and answer session during which callers may participate in the discussion.
Mr. Long will give a concise overview of the new health care reform legislation as it affects consumers and will shed light on questions such as whether the new health care bill will force people to buy health insurance, whether employers will now be required to provide medical insurance, what’s happening to Medicare, whether insurers will be required to cover pre-existing conditions and other questions vital to consumers of health insurance. Following the presentation, he will answer questions from attendees during the open Q & A session.
In March 2010 the U.S. Congress passed two acts that address one of the biggest controversies of our time – what health care should be like in the U.S. The first piece of legislation, called The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was enacted on March 23rd and briefly after that, Congress passed the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 to amend portions of the first act, and add new provisions.
Provisions of the new laws start taking effect in 2010 and the legislation will be fully phased in by 2014. The full effects of the new health care legislation on consumers and the economy are unknown at this time. However, several major insurers are already making significant changes to their pricing policies. As an example, as of May 15, 2010, Assurant Health will no longer offer rate locks of 36 or even 24 months.
Mark Rigdon, National Sales Manager at HSA for America, the nation’s leading online health insurance agency specializing in Health Savings Accounts, said Friday that he is seeing health insurance companies removing even 12 month rate guarantees from their policies and expects that going forward health insurance coverage with any type of rate guarantee beyond month-to-month will be difficult to impossible to find.
In an effort to provide highly accurate information and help consumers understand this complex topic so they can make informed decisions about their medical insurance in wake of health care reform, Wiley Long is providing free access to the teleseminar.
