An Open Letter to My Clients – Representing Your Concerns in Washington, D.C.

Dear Valued Clients:

I am excited to share that I will be attending the annual legislative conference for my professional association, the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), from February 13-15 in Washington, D.C. Representing the professionals in my industry, I will have the opportunity to present meaningful solutions to our national policymakers to improve the cost of health insurance and reduce the burdens placed on businesses and individuals across the United States.

As Congress deliberates the future of health reform and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), I feel it is extremely important that our representatives in Washington, D.C., hear what is going on with you and your employees. Our representatives need to hear a common-sense perspective from the employers’ point of view. I will attend meetings on Capitol Hill with senators, representatives and their staff and would be happy to pass along any thoughts you have about health reform.

In addition to talking to our elected representatives, I will be attending educational sessions about benefit and policy trends that include:

  • Briefings from NAHU’s national policy staff and association leadership
  • Presentations from congressional leaders, insurance executives, and other key policy makers on what to expect with the ongoing changes to health reform
  • Breakout meetings that will cover employer reporting, the use of HRAs and HSAs, and the importance of the employer tax exclusion

Congress is on the verge of implementing sweeping changes to the healthcare system this year that will greatly impact us all in many different ways. I believe that my voice and your voice truly do make a difference in shaping the changes coming to healthcare reform. I look forward to sharing our stories as I lobby on Capitol Hill.

Sincerely,

Amy Evans
