Trump’s New Health Policy: Are You Prepared?
    11/30/2016

    Due to some technical difficulties during our November 18th Post-Election Webinar, our presenters have graciously agreed to deliver this webinar again, this time also including information on some of the recent happenings and appointments made by President-Elect Trump.

    Therefore, please join our speakers from The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers (The Council) for a second Post-Election webinar on December 6, 2016 at 11 am EST as they provide an inside analysis and a results breakdown of the 2016 Election. The webinar will cover President-Elect Trump, Republican control of the House and Senate, the recent appointments made by and the potential impact on the economy, the insurance industry (and specifically the ACA) and your business.

    As speaker Joel Wood stated, though we certainly don’t know everything yet, “we know a lot more than we did a few weeks ago” about how the new regime is shaping up and what it may mean for the insurance industry, especially for the ACA.  

    The Council is the premier association for the top regional, national and international commercial insurance and employee benefits intermediaries worldwide. With expansive international reach, The Council fosters industry wide relationships around the globe by engaging lawmakers, regulators and stakeholders to promote the interests of its members and the valuable role they play in the mitigation of risk for their clients.
