NATIONAL INDEPENDENT AGENCIES
Release: Las Vegas, Nevada September 17, 2014
NIA Announces a strategic partnership with Washington National. For the first time in many years a new supplemental product has been launched in Massachusetts with the combined resources of NIA, Premier and RMB Ltd to benefit major medical policy holders throughout the state. NIA is now the preferred distribution channel for this exciting Activecare Product in MA. Agency availability in MA is exclusively managed through NIA.
NIA has rolled the Activecare product out to approximately 500 agents and expects to have it presented by 2200 by next year’s annual election period in MA.
Washington National and NIA continue to work closely to upgrade state exchanges, launch express application products to consumers, train agents and develop new products and to grow the national supplement business in the wake of the rising costs of ACA major medical products.
“Independent insurance agents” representing the full range of health care carriers available in their markets “guide & provide” options to individuals and employers that fit the needs of the beneficiaries. Independent agencies supporting non captive independent agents provide what the consumer wants and or fits their requirements not the needs or marketing preferences of the insurance providers and captive agencies that push products for profit and bonuses that neither serve their clients or properly compensate the agents who personally sell the products.
Unencumbered agents not held captive to agencies, their gimmicks or insurance providers profit or preferences can serve the consumers rather then just sell the consumers…. and by doing right for the consumer reap the lion’s share of commissions regardless of the carriers or the product. Do what the consumer really wants or needs and make more. These independent agencies will form around experienced health care insurance specialists who will be in business for themselves and will gain considerable rewards for their objective assistance to consumers.
Agents in captive relationships with large agencies, working in house for insurance companies, for property and casualty or financial planning agencies can walk away and become a part of the National Independent Agencies (NIA) System. These agents can work on their own, own their own business and get better training, support and commissions under the affiliated NIA System.
