Fast Facts

  • President-Elect Joe Biden unveiled details of his $1.9 trillion stimulus package, which is expected to be voted on by the new Democratic majority in Congress as early as next week.
  • Earlier this week, CCIIO hosted a virtual Agent and Broker Roundtable event on the recent open enrollment in the federal exchange. While final statistics on 2021 enrollments are still being calculated, agents and brokers are poised to break their record of exchange enrollments.
  • CMS officially approved Tennessee’s block-grant proposal, which would convert nearly $8 billion in federal Medicaid funding to a lump sum that state officials can exercise greater control over.
  • We really hope to see you at Capitol Conference, which will be held virtually February 22- 24. This will be one of the most important conferences ever, so please register and be ready for an experience you won’t forget.
  • NAHU has many engaging and stimulating breakout sessions planned for Cap Con. One of those sessions is “Compliance NOW Live!” Interested in submitting a question for our compliance gurus to answer? Please submit your question in an email to ComplianceNow@nahu.org.
  • At the end of 2020, Congress passed a $1.4 trillion omnibus bill that will have a direct impact on agents and brokers. Tune in to our Compliance Corner webinar on January 21 at 1:00 p.m. ET when Compliance Corner Committee member Annette Bechtold will review relevant portions of the legislation and provide you with everything you need to know.
