NAHU was featured in more than 65 news stories this week, reaching an audience of more than 85 million people.

Our media gurus tell us that one of our biggest press hits this week is from yours truly as we were quoted in Bloomberg BNA regarding the advantage consumers have of receiving counsel from brokers and agents on choosing the best insurance policies. “’We have seen how much help consumers need at the individual level and at the employer level’ since enactment of the ACA, which requires individuals and many businesses to buy health insurance, said Waltman.” Additionally, Ohio AHU member John Dodd commented in the Columbus Dispatch on Healthcare.gov’s proposed rate increase of 14.5% for 2016 plans in Ohio to help restore profitability.

We also have new numbers on our social media campaign. Since March, NAHU's new social media campaign has tremendously increased our social media presence, numbers and viewership on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
