NAIFA weighs in on new bill to address MLR rule

In a podcast produced by Employee Benefit Adviser magazine, NAIFA Vice President of Federal Government Relations Diane Boyle discusses a Senate bill that would change the way agent compensation is considered in the federal health care law’s medical loss ratio (MLR) provision.

“The bill … would allow consumers to have access to that very much needed advice and counsel that they receive from health insurance agents,’ Ms. Boyle told the magazine.

A similar bill in the House of Representatives has at least 170 bipartisan cosponsors.
