This Health Care Reform issue is such a big change for our industry, it’s our responsibility to understand the changes and help users understand them too.

YourInsuranceQuestion.com (YIQ) founder, Patrick Sitkins says that insurance agents need to assist businesses and individuals in understanding Health Care Reform. Responding to last week's news that Democratic Senators have raised concerns over the available information on Health Care Reform, Sitkins confirmed his company’s dedication to providing Health Care Reform information.

He said, “Recent reports have suggested that only a quarter of business owners understand their requirements for next year. That’s a huge problem. Our members, and our staff, are constantly working on this issue. The research, planning and assessment are non-stop. This Health Care Reform issue is such a big change for our industry, it’s our responsibility to understand the changes and help users understand them too.”

Sitkins said that providing free answers to these kinds of insurance questions is the reason YIQ was created. “The types of companies being talked about in Congress are the reason we set up YIQ. We know, we’ve known for a long time, that there are business owners who need help understanding their insurance. That goes for everything, not just health care reform. Our job is to provide answers to their questions, and those answers shouldn’t come at a cost.”

Summing up the problem, Sitkins confirmed there is still a gap in most people’s Health Care Reform knowledge, “There is a lot of confusion and a lot of uncertainty out there. When we see democratic senators talking about that uncertainty, the size of the challenge is clear. We have around six months left to educate and inform businesses and individuals on their responsibilities and their entitlements. That’s the big challenge for insurance agents, and for YIQ.”
