ABOUT THE EVENT
FWAHU is going virtual! Our Medicare Sales Symposium features some great speakers and topics that we believe you will find educational and entertaining. The event offers 6 hours classroom continuing education credit with no test required.
Everyone! Because this event is being hosted virtually, agents from across the state of Texas are invited. You do not have to be a FWAHU member to attend. Whether you sell group, individual, or Medicare products, we believe that you’ll find the information beneficial. We hope you can join us.
WHAT’S THE COST?
The cost is $30 for NAHU members and $60 for non-members. If you’d prefer to attend just one or two sessions, the cost is $15 per class. Please be sure to invite anyone in your office who might be interested. It’s a great way to get some CE credit right before the busy fourth quarter.
Don't miss this opportunity!
COVID-19 has forced us to cancel our in-person event, but that just gives us an opportunity to try out this new virtual option. We think you'll like it.
A big THANK YOU to our Exhibitors for making this event possible

In this one-hour course, we’ll talk about the basics of dental insurance in the same way that brokers could educate their clients about this important benefit. We’ll start with the why – why do employees need dental coverage and why should employees offer it? We’ll then dive deeper into they why discussion by explaining the relationship between dental health and overall health. Next, we’ll talk about the different parts of a dental policy – the contracted provider network and how out-of-network benefits are covered, the deductible and annual limit on benefits, how periodontics and endodontics are covered (as basic or major), waiting periods for individuals and certain small employers without prior dental coverage, etc. We’ll finish by examining some of the trends that have emerged as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including surcharges for protective gear and telehealth for dental.

In this course, we’ll talk about employer reporting under the Affordable Care Act. This is a requirement that’s been around for the last five years, but with COVID-19, 2020 reporting could be even more challenging than normal. The reasons are numerous: employers have other things to focus on right now, including keeping their business open; many employees have worked reduced hours or come back to work after being furloughed, making counting employees difficult; and some employers have reduced their employer contribution during this challenging time, which could now subject them to penalties.
Because brokers will no doubt get lots of questions in the months ahead, it’s important that they understand the basics of employer reporting, understand what has recently changed, and know how to talk with their clients about the importance and benefits of outsourcing this responsibility to a professional administrator.
This session focuses on Webinar Meetings and presenting yourself in the best light. Krista Palmer has been leading TASC in virtual meetings nationwide since the pandemic began and has been asked internally to speak on the topic, so she’ll discuss what she’s learned throughout that process. This one-hour non-CE session will focus on Set, Self, and Statement.

As we continue to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, many of our employer clients have questions about their current insurance coverage. Do their business interruption policies cover losses associated with the coronavirus? What about key employee insurance? Or workers comp? Or disability? Or hospital indemnity plans? In this one-hour session, TAHU President Audra Sullivan will discuss how some of these plans are dealing with COVID-19 claims.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, most people are pretty concerned about their health care coverage. In fact, it was the number one issue for many voters in the recent election, and that means you may get more questions than normal about where we’re headed as a country. We’ll try to answer that question (as best we can) in this session. We’ll start with a current state of the health insurance industry and move on to some predictions on where the market could be going and what changes we can expect from the Biden administration. Most importantly, we’ll talk about what you should be doing now to prepare for the changes to come.
