Local Agent Becomes PPACA Certified

Scottsdale , AZ – Jerry Anderson with Anderson Insurance Services became certified through The National Association of Health Underwriters’ (NAHU) new professional development course on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This continuing education course for agents has been approved in all 50 states, and Anderson will receive 15 education credits from the Arizona Department of Insurance.

Anderson completed this 10-hour course to receive the most up-to-date information on the key technical components of PPACA and is prepared to counsel his/her clients on upcoming required healthcare changes and new options for health plans.

“By taking this course,Anderson has joined an elite group who is uniquely qualified to assist clients in complying with the new law,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein. “He/she understands how the market is likely to change over the next few years, and is in the perfect position to advise families and businesses in planning for the future.”

Jerry Anderson commments, "The Affordable Care Act is changing the landscape of health insurance and this change is proving to be very complex. Between Grandfathered plans and premium subsidies, not mention new benefits and rates, many people might be confused as whether they should apply for coverage on the state exchange or apply off the exchange. Taking the NAHU PPACA Certification Course enbles me help my clients in making the right decisions regarding their health
coverage."
