Attending NAHU’s Annual Capitol Conference this year are MassAHU representatives Julie Jennings, RHU, LIA, CLTC, and David Shore. This is an opportunity to join hundreds of employee-benefits colleagues from around the country on Capital Hill and lobby for health reform changes of importance to you and your clients. It speaks volumes to how your Health Underwriters Political Action Committee is at work. The following topics will be highlighted:
- Repeal the Cadillac Tax and the health insurance premium tax (a.k.a. the HIT).
- Protecting those with preexisting conditions and promoting guaranteed issue.
- Allowing states to be eligible for funding for new hybrid high-risk pools/reinsurance. The new pools would not issue coverage but would be available as a reinsurance mechanism to insure risk above certain levels for high-risk individuals.
