ACA Changes, Repeal & Replace, What's to Come?
Brought to you by Sullivan Benefits & UBA
On the 29th of November the Sullivan Benefits team, many of our clients, UBA partners and their clients from around the country gathered for a remote webinar, titled: 2016 Election Results and the Impact on Health & Welfare Benefit Plans. We were delighted to be able to host this exclusive webinar through our affiliation and partnership with United Benefit Advisors.
The featured speaker was Janet Trautwein, CEO of the National Association of Health Underwriters, our industry lobby and one of the nation's largest advocates for employer sponsored health care.  Janet is extremely "plugged-in" to all that is goes on in Washington and what it might mean to health and welfare benefit plans.   
We are pleased to be able to offer you a second opportunity to view the entire webinar (50 minutes).  
Don't Miss The Key Point!  Given President-elect Donald Trump's promise to repeal and replace The Affordable Care Act (ACA), the logical question now becomes; how?  Janet will share her thoughts on how things may play out in a 7 minute segment of the webinar.  This key segment specifically spells out her opinion on what may be in store for the ACA as we know it.

In cold climates, everyone is susceptible to frostbite, but taking a few simple precautions can help keep you safe and healthy during the winter season.

Frostbite is caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures, usually accompanied by a low wind chill factor or by brief exposure to excessively frigid or wet conditions.
Risk Factors

Certain people are more susceptible to developing frostbite, including children, the elderly and those with circulatory problems.  People who have diabetes are also at a greater risk.   Read more
