As you may know, Michigan Representative Mike Rogers (R-MI-8) and Georgia Representative John Barrow (D-GA-12), introduced H.R. 2328, a bill to remove broker compensation from the Medical Loss Ratio (MLR) calculation back in June and already the bill has 49 co-sponsors! This legislation would remove agent/broker compensation from the MLR calculation issued under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and would also stop the carrier reductions that have led to a reduction in consumer access to crucial services provided by insurance producers on a daily basis.
While House members are rapidly signing onto H.R. 2328 we still need more co-sponsors to get the bill moving in the Energy and Commerce Committee!
Please urge your member of Congress to co-sponsor H.R. 2328 and if they already have, please thank them! August recess is fast approaching so please, follow up on your grassroots efforts by scheduling an in-district meeting with your Representative and let them know what you are doing to keep your doors open and to educate your clients as we approach October 1st and 2014.
