About the Certification

Consumer directed health care options, including those for Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs), have opened a wealth of opportunities for consumers. These opportunities have created new responsibilities for agents and brokers, and advising clients in these areas is more difficult and time-consuming than it has been in the past.

To address the new market options, NAHU has created a new CDHC certification course. Completion of this course will ensure a strong technical knowledge of the rules and regulations pertaining to various types of consumer directed health care options and proven methods for communicating those options to employers and employees in a compelling way.

The new certification program in consumer driven health care (CDHC) is a four-hour course that provides brokers with technical, actionable information they can use to help clients consider these fast-evolving plans and implement them successfully. The class is open to employers, as well. The certification will serve as a distinction for producers as credentialed experts in the sophisticated space of CDHC.

If you want to stand out among your peers and are looking for real education to improve your knowledge, this course is for you. Your clients depend on you, so make sure you have the answers.
