With national projections forecasting that a large number of Americans will be forced to find new coverage, the opportunities expand for health insurance advisors to attract new business.That dynamic intensifies the importance of the IHC/ZZI live webcast.

The IHC Group (IHC) announced today a live webcast with Zig Ziglar International (ZZI), to motivate thousands of health insurance advisors as they prepare for the upcoming 2017 Obamacare open enrollment, which is set to begin in just 10 days on Nov. 1, 2016. The webcast will also introduce IHC’s new fixed indemnity product, Care Access Plan.

At least 1.4 million people in 32 states in 2017 will lose the Obamacare plan they have now, according to a recent report from Bloomberg.** With national projections forecasting that a large number of Americans will be forced to find new coverage, the opportunities expand for health insurance advisors to attract new business. That dynamic intensifies the importance of the IHC/ZZI alliance, which seeks to implement best-in-practice sales strategies to give health insurance advisors an edge on their competition.

“Having had the honor of both working with, and for, the legendary Mr. Zig Ziglar, I am extremely excited about this rare opportunity to bring our companies together to help others grow in their personal and professional lives,” said David Keeler, Senior Vice President of Business Development at IHC Specialty Benefits. “Our new Care Access Plan product that we are rolling out at IHC will truly help many others achieve their sales goals for this open enrollment period and beyond.”

“We change lives at Zig Ziglar International by transforming success into significance,” said Edwin Britt, President of Sales for ZZI and a nationally acclaimed keynote speaker. “For many years, I have consulted as an advisor directly representing The IHC Companies, and I have worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Mr. Ziglar and Mr. Keeler. And so, I understand the genuine value generated by this powerful partnership.”
