Get Social for This Year's Open Enrollment & Broker Training
Did you take part in NAHU’s Social Media Day on Wednesday? If not, it’s not too late to get social for this open-enrollment season and spread the word on the value of agents.

NAHU encourages members to use the hashtags #AgentsAreTheAnswer, #OpenEnrollment and #NAHU, this way all posts and tweets with the same hashtag will appear together when searched and will help increase the odds of consumers viewing this topic.

NAHU has developed sample social media posts to promote the role of agents in Medicare’s annual election period, the marketplace open enrollment, and for employers. More information is available on how to set up a Twitter page and how to tweet, as well as how to create and post to a Facebook account.

As a reminder, all agents and brokers must complete the federal marketplace registration and training in order to assist consumers with enrollment through HealthCare.gov beginning on November 1. Agents and brokers who successfully completed plan-year 2018 registration can only assist consumers through October 31, 2018, when plan-year 2018 agreements expire. Agents and brokers must complete plan-year 2019 registration and training to be able to assist consumers with 2018 coverage during November and December 2018, or to help consumers enroll for the first time or re-enroll in coverage for plan-year 2019. To access resources for agents and brokers on working in the health insurance marketplace and the Small Business Health Options Program, visit CMS.gov.

Additionally, the DC Health Link Broker Training is now available for brokers participating in the DC marketplace. This required training will help brokers understand how the new DC Health Care Marketplace will work. Since the DC Healthcare Marketplace will be the primary place where people access coverage in the District of Columbia, it’s very important that brokers understand key points about what is needed to assist their clients. Course materials are offered in an online format. As brokers go throughout the course, they will have quiz questions that will serve as touch points so they are able to understand important concepts associated with a particular session. The sessions are divided into five parts.

This program also offers continuing education credits that will apply to Maryland and District of Columbia resident license holders only, following completion of a final exam.

The training is free for DC, MD and VA residents. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to purchase and access the DC Health Link Broker Training in the Online Learning Institute.
