6/17: GGAHU Health Reform & COBRA CE
May 07, 2009
Membership Meeting & Installation of Officers
Within the first month of his Administration, President Obama committed hundreds of billions of dollars to health reform – yet he wasn’t even able to nominate a tolerable Secretary of Health & Human Services. This degree of initiative suggests that vague talk of “change” will result in real action on health reform. The direction is clear: President Obama wants Americans to depend on the federal government to a far greater degree than they have in the past. Regulation of health insurance is squarely in the cross-hairs.
How will the role of insurance professionals change? Will there even be a role for insurance professionals? John R. Graham, Director of Health Care Studies at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco, will assess the costs and consequences of President Obama’s health reforms and propose alternatives to achieve affordable and accessible health care for all Americans.
“All About COBRA” 1 hour CE course #22063
The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) gives workers and their families who lose their health benefits the right to choose to continue group health benefits provided by their group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such as voluntary or involuntary job loss, reduction in the hours worked, transition between jobs, death, divorce, and other life events.
In this seminar GGAHU will help brokers understand this national and state-based regulation, how individuals qualify, and help them relate conditions for COBRA to the newest employer sponsored consumer directed health plans. GGAHU will also enable brokers to gain full understanding of compliance issues so they can adequately advise their employers as to what to avoid in potential COBRA mistakes.
