4 Resources: How to Have Productive #MedicareForAll Conversations

Feb, 25 2020

It’s election year and single-payer healthcare chatter is already filling the airways. There is quite a bit of antagonistic rhetoric out there, so how can you join the conversation to skillfully represent our industry?

I’m sharing 4 resources to prepare you for productive discussions that help Americans understand the pros and cons of a government-run plan AND focus on options to help your clients today…

1. 30-minute webinar with two ex-Canadians (and insurance pros)

I grew up in Canada and by chance, so did our VP of Sales, Neil Kennish. I’ve been speaking on government-controlled healthcare for 20+ years. In this webinar, Neil and I share personal insights coupled with our roles as U.S. healthcare and insurance pros. Why not hear some perspective from a couple of hosers, eh?

2. Q&A

As you can imagine, the webinar participants asked some great questions that we didn’t have time to answer. Click here to read the 6 most-asked questions along with our answers. Feel free to email me at reid@freshbenies.com if you have a burning question that’s not in our list.

4. Single-Payer Certification

Join me live for a 3-hour NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters) course created to educate health insurance professionals about the benefit structure under the single-payer proposal. It includes in-depth instruction on the importance of the overall function and financing of healthcare in our country. We’ll also explore some of the proposals and variations Congress is currently considering. Choose from one of the offerings below, reach out to me to book a session for your next event, or take the online class by NAHU CEO, Janet Trautwein.

I hope these resources equip you to have productive conversations – and use your healthcare expertise and influence to help others understand the options and possible outcomes. 

Now it’s your turn! What other resources would you recommend on this topic? Are you having discussions with colleagues, neighbors or clients? Comment below or email me at reid@freshbenies.com.

I didn’t want to go to urgent care or the ER. Using Doctors Online in my freshbenies membership, I went online to ask a doctor. The doctor responded and said to check my blood pressure. He followed up with the next day to make sure my numbers were OK. By then, the feeling was starting to go away. He told me if it persists to contact my doctor. It was great that I didn’t have to go somewhere and wait forever, and it was free.” - Kelli from Texas

I went to the eye doctor for my regular eye exam. I needed to get contacts and they were going to cost $80 so I pulled up my Vision Savings through freshbenies and found I could get them for $22!
