Never has such a far reaching bill been passed by Congress that so many Americans disagreed with. At a minimum, the MLR [Minimum Loss Ratio] portion of the law needs to be rescinded.
Fort Worth, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) March 29, 2011
American Health Underwriters, a leading health insurance marketing organization, continues to create opportunities for independent insurance agents despite Obamacare. American Health Underwriters is adding new independent agents each week while continuing to pay top commissions and offer free leads.
President Barack Obama signed the Healthcare Reform Bill into law one year ago. Because American Health Underwriters offers private-label plans that fall outside of Obamacare mandates, American Health Underwriters has had no reduction in commissions on many of their products and is witnessing new hires every week. However, many other companies have cut their agents’ commissions significantly—in some cases by as much as 75 percent, due in large part to the Minimum Loss Ratio (MLR) portion of the law.
“Never has such a far reaching bill been passed by Congress that so many Americans disagreed with. At a minimum, the MLR [Minimum Loss Ratio] portion of the law needs to be rescinded,” said Gary Davis, Director of Marketing for American Health Underwriters.
Currently, a bill is being introduced in Congress to exempt agents’ commissions from the MLR calculation. If passed, agents’ commissions could be restored to their previous levels by many carriers.
