Lewisville, TX (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
The Brokerage, Inc. is spending this fall season on the road. With a series of workshops scheduled throughout September, the Texas-based IMO is focused on helping insurance agents around the country prepare for the Medicare and the Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment Period. This year, Medicare Annual Enrollment Period is October 15 to December 7. The ACA Open Enrollment Period is November 15 to February 15, 2015.
“As opposed to last year, the healthcare.gov site is expected to be fully operational with no extensions, meaning everything will go into effect March 1 with no foreseen hiccups,” said The Brokerage, Inc. President Mike Smith. “So we will definitely be in full swing.”
Using http://www.medicare.gov, The Brokerage, Inc. will be assisting agents with calculating prescription drug plans, selecting ideal health plans for Medicare beneficiaries, and providing a sneak peek of Medicare and Drug plans with Humana and United Healthcare for 2015’s nationwide portfolio.
Using http://www.healthcare.gov, the company will show agents how to cater to individuals as well as how to analyze small business needs. Following the workshops, producers will be able to identify whether or not a small business qualifies for premium subsidies or health insurance tax credits through the Small Group Health Options Program (SHOP).
In addition to learning how to maximize their income and coverage during this crucial season, insurance agents that attend one of The Brokerage, Inc.’s traveling fall workshops also become eligible to win door prizes and other giveaways.
