Charting workforce trends and challenges on the journey to health care reform
The 2014 Aflac WorkForces Report for Brokers reveals that brokerages of all sizes have accepted the reality of health insurance reform and are responding to industry changes in numerous ways.
Last year, when Aflac first surveyed brokers to gauge their opinions and attitudes about health care insurance trends, the findings indicated their industry was at a crossroads. Changes to the way major medical insurance is shopped for and purchased had resulted in deep concern about the state of the broker business at large, not to mention brokers’ individual livelihoods.
In the past 12 months, many things have changed. This year’s findings indicate that while some brokers have left the industry and others are still considering doing so, those who have adapted to the new health insurance reality are determining the best ways to successfully navigate the changing landscape. Still, the fallout from reform continues to reverberate, as evidenced by today’s top five issues for brokers.
