“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has been a confusing piece of legislation that has caused much anxiety and concern for our clients,” said Shannon Hansen, Benefits Services Coordinator at ANBTX Insurance. “One of my key job responsibilities is to help clients understand and manage this law.”
To better serve clients at ANTBX Insurance, Hansen recently completed an elite course through the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) which provides her with further knowledge and expertise to lead clients through the health care reform maze in 2014 and beyond. Those who are certified in this Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) professional development course have received the most up-to-date information on the key technical components of PPACA and are prepared to counsel clients on upcoming required healthcare changes and new options for health plans.
This certification grants Hansen superior knowledge of:
Implementing healthcare reform—overview and politics
Grandfathered plans and the small-business tax credit
Medicare Part D and non-discrimination rules
Patient protection and changes to consumer-directed health plans
Medical loss ratio requirements and tax implications
W-2 reporting, summary of benefits, waiting periods, essential benefits and community rating
Individual mandate, pre-existing conditions and rating reform
Health insurance exchanges for individuals and small employers
Employer pay or play
“By taking this course, Shannon Hansen has joined an elite group who is uniquely qualified to assist clients in complying with the new law,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein. “She understands how the market is likely to change over the next few years, and is in the perfect position to advise families and businesses in planning for the future.”
A recent study found that even after three years of existence, the majority of Americans (62 percent) do not understand Obamacare. The good news is that if you find yourself in this camp and need assistance navigating your healthcare options, ANBTX Insurance can help.
ANBTX Insurance handles all aspects of insurance coverage for business and personal lines by understanding how valuable it is to have a deeper understanding of industries and lines of coverage.
