The National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) unanimously passed a resolution to preserve the role of health insurance agents and brokers in the enrollment and servicing of insurance plans.
 
The resolution notes that health insurance agents and brokers currently guide millions of consumers through the complexities of the health insurance purchasing and enrollment process and help design programs individually tailored to the unique needs of each buyer.  The legislators urge Congress to ensure that licensed health insurance agents and brokers retain the right under any newly enacted legislation to enroll individuals and employers in any private or public sector health insurance option.

PIA National strongly supports this resolution and we commend Representative Ron Crimm (KY), the sponsor of the resolution and Senator Ann Cummings (VT), the Committee Chair, for their leadership on this critical issue. We urge you to contact your Congressional Representatives to let them know how you feel about this matter and share this resolution with them.
