Associate Dean and Assistant Professor of Insurance Allen C. McLellan, CASL®, ChFC®, CLU®, LUTCF, CFP®, shares more about the new designation program:
"The ChHC™ (Chartered Healthcare Consultant™) credential will be the most robust, credible designation for healthcare consultants. That's the way we're designing the program, and it's built on real-time information," said McLellan.
The first course, Essentials of Healthcare Reform, launches in the popular webinar format on January 25, 2011. It will run 10 weeks and will cover such key topic areas as:
- Mandated changes and immediate adjustments to social programs
- The terms and definitions you need to know to operate in the new environment
- Programs and incentives offered by the government
- Effective dates and timelines
- Grandfathered plans and employer advantages & disadvantages
- State exchanges and the "navigator" role
- Medical loss ratios
- Internal and external review processes
- Early Retiree Reinsurance Program (ERRP)
- Impacts to HIPAA, ERISA and the CLASS Act
- Effect on FSAs, HSAs, and Cafeteria Plans
- How advisor business models will be impacted
Altogether there will be six courses, five required and one elective, in the ChHC™ curriculum. The second new course, The Healthcare Consultant, launches in April of 2011.
"There is so much knowledge here that advisors must have to be effective now," said McLellan. "Even those who don't routinely work on the healthcare side of benefits will want to know the basic terminology and parameters of the new law, because ancillary benefit programs will also be affected. Healthcare is what employers and individuals are thinking about, and these courses offer the first in-depth, comprehensive approach to quality education on the issue."
