The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) will hold its Fall National Meeting from October 16-21 and will address a wide range of critical issues affecting producers, including licensing, Dodd-Frank implementation, health insurance and managed care, and natural disaster preparedness.

Healthcare will once again be a main focus of this meeting and PIA will continue to be involved in all the discussions surrounding implementation of the new health care law at the NAIC. One of our key goals is to continue to work with the regulators to preserve the role of the independent agency system in health insurance delivery. We will also be partnering with regulators to help them answer any questions they may have about setting up health insurance exchanges in their states.

Producer licensing continues to garner much attention at the NAIC and the regulators are working with us to streamline the business entity licensing process. NAIC members will also elect a new Secretary-Treasurer. Commissioner James Donelan (LA) is a leading candidate. He currently serves as Secretary of the Southeastern Zone. Jane Cline (WV) will end her term as President and Susan Voss (IA) will take over as NAIC President. Kevin McCarty (FL) will become President-Elect and Commissioner Kim Holland (OK) will become Vice President.

PIA National's Assistant Vice President for Regulatory Affairs David Eppstein davidep@pianet.org will attend the meetings on behalf of PIA National and provide comments to regulators.
