IU Health Plans quitting Obamacare exchange, citing ‘heightened financial uncertainty’ Plans

ibjThe move combined with other insurer defections will leave Hoosiers with just five Obamacare marketplace options.

We all have experienced the increased workload with less or no commission. It was a  timely topic as we enter into individual open enrollment season.

Dwight Hall and Bill Robinson also gave short updates on Legislation and Membership.

The golf outing  followed with tee time at 11:30.

Pay Your Dues by Bank Draft…You Could be a Winner

NAHU has a new bank draft contest!

flier-bank-draft-campaign-2016There are two ways to win:

1. New members joining by bank draft between the dates of 9-1 and 11-30 will be entered into a drawing for $250 gift card. We are giving away 14 of those in this category

2. Current members RENEWING and changing from annual to bank draft in that same time frame will also be entered into a drawing for $250 gift card and there are 14 of those as well.

There are a total of 28 gift cards being given away. Additionally, all 28 of those winners will be dumped into another drawing for another $500 gift card, SO they have a 1/28 chance of getting another $500 on top of their $250.

NAHU will be drawing the 1st or 2nd week of December which will give those winners some extra Christmas money!!  Hopefully everyone will consider moving to automatic bank draft so that they will be entered in this contest.
