PIA’s message encouraging consumers to consider using PIA agents to help them secure health insurance is continuing to gain traction. PIA issued a consumer-focused press release on October 22 advising that as millions of consumers face problems accessing the government website for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), there is another way to buy health insurance — through a licensed, ACA-certified Professional Insurance Agent.

PIA’s message was released one day after President Obama was forced to admit that the Federal Government’s computer system built to enroll people in ACA coverage is having serious problems. The President said “there are many ways to buy” policies other than online, but he failed to mention agents and brokers. Subsequently, there have been news stories in both the insurance trade press and consumer press that focus on other ways people can shop for health insurance.

BenefitsPro, the L&H edition of the National Underwriter, published an article based on PIA’s remarks. In addition, Consumer Affairs did an article in which PIA is quoted offering advice about consulting a Professional Insurance Agent.
