When insurance carriers and independent agencies hire college graduates for insurance agent positions, they have nowhere to turn for quality basic training. In today’s challenging health insurance market, new agents are in need of a basic nuts and bolts overview about how health insurance markets work and what agents need to know to get started in health insurance sales. To meet this need, NAHU has developed a two-hour Health Insurance 101 program. The program is designed to explain health insurance in basic terms, and also provide new insurance professionals with contact information for resources that can provide additional help as they dive into their sales career.
Health Insurance 101 curriculum will provide a basic overview of the following:
- Role of the Health Insurance Producer
- Employer Sponsored Health Insurance Coverage
- Small Group Health Insurance Markets
- Large Group Health Insurance Markets
- Individual Insurance Coverage
- Health Insurance Product Options
- Working with the Exchange
- Glossary of Terms
Course instruction will be delivered through NAHU's Online Learning Institute (OLI).
The cost of this program is $120 for NAHU members and $159 for non-members. Continuing education credits (status by state and rules) will be provided following completion of the course and an online examination with a passing grade.
