ChHC Sold Out Courses Helping Advisors Cope with Healthcare Reform

"I've never seen anything like it," said Allen C. McLellan, CASL®, ChFC®, CLU®, LUTCF, CFP®, Associate Dean of The American College. "The new Essentials of Healthcare Reform course launched in January, and section after section kept selling out. Hundreds of students are completing the 10-week live webinar classes now, and we've been scrambling to get everyone who wants a spot into an available class."

Essentials of Healthcare Reform includes a full-year of informational updates at no additional charge, ensuring that an advisor's knowledge remains current as any changes are made to the implementation of the law. "All of the basics are here," said McLellan. "Implementation mandates and dates, grandfathered plans, medical loss ratios, how other laws are impacted, small business plans, state exchanges and the 'navigator' role, and more."
