Our October membership meeting was hosted and conducted by chapter Professional Development Chair Daniel Murphy on October 9th from 11:00-12:30. The subject was New Competitors in the Individual Market, and featured in-depth discussion on some of the new carrier ACA individual market U65 plans available in Western North Carolina for 2021. The meeting was well-attended and included a few non-member guests. Our next membership meeting is scheduled for Friday, November 13th from 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM and on the subject of The Advent of Direct Primary Care. With Blue Cross Blue Shield pushing their innovative Advanced Primary Care services in more and more of the state, and the rise of many local Direct Primary Care providers, it's important for any insurance professional to better understand this system of care. This topic will focus on ways that we can incorporate this model of care into individual and group sales, in order to build value and strengthen the level of care available to our clients. Watch for an invitation via email from WNCAHU soon. Your RSVP via the invitation is appreciated.
