NAHU CEO: Consumers In New Health Exchanges Will Need Insurance Agents.

In a Baltimore Sun (8/12) op-ed, reports, National
Association of Health Underwriters CEO Janet Trautwein agrees with HHS
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who argued in recent Baltimore Sun op-ed that a
"new health insurance exchange will help Maryland's small businesses more
easily find affordable coverage." But, Trautwein adds, that will only
happen if "consumers and small businesses can access licensed,
professional insurance agents through the new marketplace." She points out
that the Congressional Budget Office "asserts that brokers 'handle the
responsibilities that larger firms generally delegate to their human resource
departments -- such as finding plans and negotiating premiums, providing
information about the selected plans, and processing enrollees.'"
