How to be successful in the individual health market

This meeting is designed to give agents updates on the upcoming open enrollment and specifically how they handle their individual medical clients they enrolled through the Marketplace in 2014.   We have seen very little information so far on how these clients will re-qualify for their subsidies and what that process will be.  

 

Speakers are George Brandes and Rocky Cowan:

 

George is Sr. VP Insurance at Jackson Hewitt and Rocky Cowan is with Cowan Benefits. 

 

Rocky will be giving some tips on the agent side and navigating the Marketplace site and George will be telling us how we will re-enroll subsidy clients in the upcoming open enrollment.
