Dear valued customers:
Employee Benefits Nashville has taken on a new identity to be called Rest Easy Insurance. This new name is a result of my continued work with individuals, families, and business owners throughout the tumultuous implementations of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, which was signed into law on March 23rd, 2010.
The change comes about after feeling the overall fear and uncertainty regarding product changes, premium increases, and new employer requirements that came about after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The penalties for individuals and employers were widely misunderstood or not understood at all. There was quite a bit of chaos during the first open enrollment. Many people experienced sticker shock. Many needed help understanding the different products offered ON and OFF Marketplace and what was best for their situation, including exploration of subsidies (help paying monthly premiums and lowering out of pocket costs for individuals and their families). Employers were especially concerned due to penalties for non compliance in the thousands of dollars per employee in some instances. During some of this time even BlueCross and the other major carriers were not able to tell brokers what was required. You can imagine the confusion!
My role as a benefits consultant provided an opportunity to reach out to my clients and give them the information they needed to feel confident about their understanding of the law as it applied to them, whether an individual or business owner.
The name change was finally chosen due to my Medicare beneficiaries. This is my very special group of customers that leave me feeling on top of the world after our meetings. When I arrive at their door for the first meeting, many bring large paper bags full of flyers on supplements, advantage plans, Part D, Medigap, and other carrier advertising that is confusing for anyone. I take them to the garbage can and we dump those out together. Then we go into an educational meeting about what is available to them, what product covers their needs, and I stay until they have a full understanding of Medicare and related products. It’s as easy as A, B, C, and D! You can Rest Easy knowing you are in experienced and caring hands with me.
I look forward to getting to know each of you better and expanding my business with personal referrals from all.
