Nebraska DOI Announces Speaking Tour and Offers 2 Free CE General Credits to Attend.

The Nebraska Department of Insurance invites you to one of their newly announced speaking sessions. They will be traveling around the state in October and November and are offering 2 free GENERAL CE credit hours to those who attend.

Recently there has been a lot of news coming out of Washington D.C. regarding health insurance. Many Nebraskans may be left wondering about the current state of health insurance and how it will affect them. The Department of Insurance will be holding listening sessions across the state to answer these questions and listen to Nebraskans’ concerns about the Affordable Care Act and health insurance. The Department will also discuss property and casualty topics that may be of interest to consumers.

Bruce Ramge, Director of the Nebraska Department of Insurance, wants to remind individuals that open enrollment dates have changed this year and that the plan they had last year may no longer exist. “The open enrollment dates for the 2018 plan year begin on November 1 and end December 15. With these dates being different, along with the other significant changes to the Nebraska insurance market, I encourage individuals to come to the sessions and ask any questions they may have,” said Ramge.

The Department of Insurance plans to share their expertise on health and property and casualty insurance. Individuals will also learn how to appeal a denied healthcare claim and the steps necessary to ensure the appeal is done correctly.

The listening sessions will consist of a brief discussion on the following topics:

  • The current status of the Affordable Care Act and what to expect in the future 
  • The health insurance market and 2018 premiums 
  • Preventative care coverage 
  • Mental health parity 
  • Property and casualty insurance
  • The appeals process for denied health claims and external review

 

 Licensed insurance producers who attend one of the sessions will receive two hours of FREE General CE credits.  Pre-registration is NOT required -- all you have to do is show up!
