America’s Health Insurance Announces In-Person Assistance in Enrolling Consumers through the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace
As concerns arise over the security of sensitive information being handled by federally-appointed “navigators,” America’s Health Insurance is partnering with Anthem to set up booths in pharmacies for consumers to receive in-person, one-on-one, assistance from reliable licensed agents.
Fort Wayne, IN (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Headlines such as Forbes, Who are Obamacare Navigators and Will They Steal Your Identity?, are filtering through the news-waves this week. NPR reported that Florida was balking at using navigators because of the lack of control over navigators stealing data and personal information from the consumers they are counseling. In an article written on August 26th, the West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey addresses the concern that the navigator program may expose the nation's citizens to identity thieves. He was quoted stating that “Obamacare is a bonanza for thieves.” GOP Rep. Diane Black of Tennessee wrote a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius indicating her concern over the reduction in training for navigators from thirty hours to twenty hours. The notion of under-qualified, lightly trained navigators is raising concerns of the security of consumer information and quality of service to consumers.
On the contrary, a recent study by the University of Minnesota found that when agents or brokers are involved in shopping for health insurance coverage, it is more likely that firms and individuals will purchase coverage at a lower price because of the increasing agent/broker competition. Agents and brokers are required by state laws to be trained, licensed, and are highly responsible for the security of personal information, such as social security numbers, health records, etc, through privacy acts.
America’s Health Insurance has invested hundreds of man hours to comprehend the depth of the Affordable Care Act law, and how it will affect their current and future customers. They are currently in training to become a registered and certified agent in the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace. Insurance agents and brokers have track records of extensive training, protecting the privacy of clients and prospects, and the knowledge of health insurance products that will benefit consumers. America’s Health Insurance feels they are obligated to do everything they can to uphold their core beliefs that consumers are entitled to the best plans at the best prices.
America’s Health Insurance is partnering with Anthem to set up booths in stores like Kroger, Wal-Mart, and Sam’s Club to help consumers evaluate their options and purchase coverage in the exchange from an educated and experienced licensed agent. America’s Health Insurance agents will be setting up their first booth at the Chestnut Hills Kroger pharmacy in Fort Wayne, Indiana—10230 Chestnut Plaza Dr—between the dates of October 1, 2013 through December 7, 2013. This initiative is designed to help consumers receive every benefit and opportunity that the Affordable Care Act presents to individuals.
