PIA's rebuttal to an article in Kaiser Health News by seven NAIC-funded consumer activists in which they characterize compensation to licensed health insurance agents and brokers as "unnecessary administrative expenses" is getting more traction. Last week, an NAIC daily newsletter featured a summary of PIA's objections and a link to our full article.
