Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Health Partners America (http://www.healthpartnersamerica.com), a company that provides training, tools, and technology solutions for insurance agents and employers who are navigating the health reform legislation, announces the release of its new white paper 10 ACA FAQs for Individuals and Families. This 11-page document was written to help health insurance agents and brokers answer some of the most common and often most difficult questions their clients are asking.
As the paper explains, although weve already completed the first annual open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act, a majority of Americans are still confused about the health reform legislation, and many arent sure where to turn for help. This document will help agents give them the information they need.
This white paper covers a lot of ground, says Mel Blackwell, CEO of Health Partners America. It addresses topics like the individual mandate, penalties, and premium tax credits, as you might expect, but it also explains how health plans are changing under the law, how people with current coverage might be able to hang on to it, and how health insurance companies will treat pre-existing conditions.
Insurance agents have spent a lot of time educating their clients about the legislation in the past four years both the pros and the cons but there are still a lot of people who have yet to learn about their responsibility to purchase health coverage and the financial assistance they may qualify for. This tool helps simplify the material for them so that brokers can get their clients up to speed and then begin working on a solution.
Health Partners America is offering the full report at no cost through the companys website.
