Healthcare Reform News

From Congressman Andy Barr's office:

As one of Congressman Barr’s key health care contacts in our district, I wanted to share the proposed budget reconciliation bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. You can read a summary and the full bill text online: https://protect-us.mimecast.com/s/lNGQB4U4mJSY?domain=housegop.leadpages.co

Repost from The Hill

House Republicans on Monday (March 6, 2017) unveiled their long-awaited bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare.  The measure dismantles the core aspects of ObamaCare, including its subsidies to help people buy coverage, its expansion of Medicaid, its taxes and its mandates for people to have insurance.  In its place, Republicans would put in place a new system centered on a tax credit to help people buy insurance.

Central Kentucky Association of Health Underwriters is Once Again Gold Certified

Central Kentucky Association of Health Underwriters has received a Gold Status Report from the NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters) Chapter Certification Program. In order to receive this status, the CKAHU board must meet several criteria, and thanks to our dedicated board we were able to do so! The criteria include having a full board, bylaws, complying with the applicable IRS filings, maintaining a strategic plan and budget, and providing communication to our members. 

DOI Announcement on CE Extensions

Amended guidance to our licensees who need to complete continuing education requirements in order to renew their licenses: 

Due to the COVID-19 emergency status, the Department of Insurance will be extending the time requirements for completion and submission of continuing education hours.  Beginning with those who had continuing education due by March 31, 2020, and continuing until the month in which the state of emergency ends, licensees will have sixty (60) days following the end of the state of emergency to complete continuing education requirements.  The reporting period of the completion of the continuing hours to the Department is also extended appropriately. 

This action only extends CE deadlines, and does not extend license renewal deadlines.  License renewal is completed electronically, and currently has a 60-day grace period.

If you have any questions, please contact the Division of Agent Licensing at [email protected].

Due to the COVID-19 emergency status, the Department of Insurance will be extending the time requirements for submission of continuing education hours.  Those licensees who normally would be required to complete all continuing education hours by cob March 31, 2020 will now have until cob May 31, 2020.  Those licensees who normally would be required to complete all continuing education hours by cob April 30, 2020 will now have until June 30, 2020 to complete the hours.   The reporting period of the completion of the continuing hours to the Department is also extended appropriately. 

Additionally, with the close of the testing centers at the Community and Technical Colleges, DOI will be offering testing each day at our Mero Street office starting Wednesday, March 18.  We will be cleaning the testing facility before and after each test is given.  It should be noted for the protection of those testing and for the protection of DOI employees, anyone who comes to test and who is obviously ill, will not be allowed to test. 

The Department of Insurance (following the Governor's directive) will be at partial staff at the Mero Street location until further direction.  Employees will be rotating on a telework basis until further notice.  DOI senior staff will continue to work at the Mero Street location.  All essential business processes will continue as usual.  We are here to assist you however we can.  Thank you for your work and best wishes to you and your family,
