Mon, May 3, 2010 2:07:38 PM Say ‘No’ to Premium Limits

It’s time to act!
Changes to our industry are underway. The IHC Group has always been active on your behalf in Washington, D.C. Now we are asking for your help to ensure all of our voices are heard.
Please read Janet Trautwein’s letter below, and contact your congressmen today. Encourage them to say “no” to the Health Insurance Rate Authority Act of 2010, which will allow the federal government to establish limits on premium increases. This legislation coupled with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s minimum medical loss ratio discussed in The Flame last week, could impact the way you do business.

This is your opportunity to help shape the future of your industry, ensure your customers have access to professional agents that can help them navigate the health insurance system, and cement your role as a someone who provides a valuable service.
I strongly encourage you to take action today. If you have any questions or comments about this act or the minimum medical loss ratio, please call me. I look forward to seeing our fellow NAHU members at the 2010 Annual Convention and Exhibition in Chicago June 27–30.
