A Message from NAHU Executive Vice President and CEO Janet Trautwein on the Results of the Election
November 8 saw the conclusion of the 2016 election cycle, and with that we congratulate the winners of the election who appeared from the top to the bottom of the ballot, and we look forward to working with those elected in the years ahead. We also congratulate all of those who did not win on a hard fought campaign. We’re encouraged that now that the election has passed, we can get back to making sure we are doing everything we can to stabilize the health insurance market and improve health plan affordability and availability as well as the optimal conditions under which the market has been operating for our members and their clients. There will be no magic bullet. An across the board repeal of the ACA is unlikely, and we will be working with President-elect Trump and congressional leadership to determine the best approach and timing for change in our healthcare system. However, one thing is certain, the need for valued guidance by health insurance agents, brokers, and consultants will remain a constant as changes to the health insurance market continues in the new administration. It will be important for everyone to work together to make strategic changes in the environment we now have to aspire to marketplace stability. NAHU’s commitment to the private health insurance market and the important role our members play in that market remains strong as does our stature and influence as an association to create change that will make a difference.
