Ryan Heider - IAHU President
We met with our Idaho State Legislators and discussed the vital role of the agent. We voiced our support for house bill H.R. 815, which removes agent compensation from the medical loss ratio. Our legislators are supportive of the agent delivery system, and are aware of the impact we have in helping our clients with their insurance needs.
We visited about employer issues such as; restoring the 40 hour work week, doing away with the HIT tax, and eliminating the planned expansion of the small employer marketplace from 1-100 which will cause small group premiums to increase. We support house bill H.R. 588 to restore the open enrollment period for Medicare beneficiaries to make a one time plan change from January 1st to March 31st. We encouraged legislation to allow Cobra coverage to count as creditable coverage for Medicare beneficiaries. We advocated for market reform to increase the law’s age rating bands from the 3 to 1 spread to bands that more closely resemble the breakdown of age.
As the National Association of Health Underwriters we maintain our position that making health coverage more affordable doesn’t mean providing subsidies to pay for it. It means examining what is causing the cost of health insurance to increase at an alarming rate, and focusing on the actual cost of medical care to bring about true healthcare reform.
