The Rise of Telemedicine

Gone are the days of physician house calls, yet Telemedicine allows Americans to have a doctor back in the house again! With the development of technology, Americans can now have virtual visits with their doctors directly from the comfort of their homes or hotel rooms. Telemedicine is changing behavior through technology. Last year, our industry saw a significant acceleration of telemedicine and telehealth. This year, that growth continues to rise exponentially. Join Cathy Sapp with Teladoc as she explains the importance of telemedicine and this budding field.

Registered Employee Benefits Consultant (REBC) Program
7 Courses: 4 Required / 3 Electives

As of January 1, 2016 current students had until June 30, 2017 to complete their REBC designation through the American College.

NAHU started taking new enrollees as of January 2017. REBC has newly revised requirements and for those of you who have already been earning NAHU certifications, you may be closer to earning your REBC designation, than you think.

Earning the Registered Employee Benefits Consultant® (REBC®) designation elevates your credibility as a professional. The field of employee benefits continues to evolve rapidly. A year does not go by without new government regulations, new or modified coverages, and new techniques for controlling benefit costs. To best serve their clients, professionals need to have a current understanding of the provisions, advantages, and limitations associated with each type of benefit or program as a method for meeting economic security. The designation program analyzes group benefits with respect to the ACA environment, contract provisions, marketing, underwriting, rate making, plan design, cost containment, and alternative funding methods. The largest portion of this course is devoted to group medical expense plans that are a major concern to employers, as well as to employees. The remainder of course requirements include electives on topics serving various markets based on a broker’s client needs.

Once again as summer vacation travel is upon us – we are collecting “hotel toiletries”, toothpaste and toothbrushes for the Oasis which is a facility that allows homeless folks and families to take a shower and get a haircut. Our Association contributed 5 bags full of toiletries last year – let’s do it again! John Goergen will collect in the meetings that follow all the way up through Thanksgiving.
