BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
August 21, 2013 – Health Partners America (http://www.healthpartnersamerica.com), an innovative technology and solution provider that focuses on equipping brokers with the technology, tools, and training to address America’s health care crisis, announces the release of its new white paper about the Role of Agents, Brokers, and Web-Brokers in Health Insurance Marketplaces. This nine-page document outlines the three ways brokers will be able to enroll consumers in Marketplace plans, which allow individuals to apply for a premium tax credit: issuer-based pathway, marketplace pathway, and web-brokers. The white paper also reiterates that each of these options permits brokers to assist their clients throughout the year with adds, deletes, and other service issues.
There is much confusion and misinformation in the market place; however, Health Partners America is dedicated to helping the agent community understand that there is definitely a role for agents in the government exchanges. In Federally-facilitated marketplaces, including State-Partnership Marketplaces, brokers will be paid by the carrier, just as they are today, and the commission will be the same for plans sold through the exchange and similar plans sold in the outside market.
“At Health Partners America we feel the trusted and appropriate relationship between the employee with the employer, and the employer with their broker is the right value chain to address the sweeping changes and mandates of the ACA," says Mel Blackwell, CEO of Health Partners America. “The broker is vital. The same valued and trusted relationship chain exists for association members, their association, and their broker as well. Therefore, Health Partners America is loyal to and passionate about the broker community, and we pour our technology, tools and training into supporting brokers who will appropriately and optimally support employers and other trusted entities to address the unique needs of their respective employees and members. We feel this is a unique approach, and one that has already proven to be very sound.”
