As 2019 comes to a successful conclusion it’s time to develop your professional development and business plan for 2020. In addition to always supporting all of your local chapter and ISAHU events you should consider including NAHU sponsored events, courses, and certifications as part of your goals for 2020. NAHU has certification courses available as follows: Single payer Healthcare Certification, Account Based Health Plan Certification, Benefits Account Manager Certification, Advanced Benefits Account Manager Certification, Benefits Technology Certification, Employer Sponsored Health plans in a post ACA Era Certification, HIPAA Certification, Individual Health Insurance Certification, Medicare Certification, Self-Funded Certification, Advanced Self-Funded Certification, Voluntary Worksite Certification, and Wellness Certification. Information on these courses can be found on the NAHU website under Professional Development.
Two other NAHU programs you should consider are Leading Producers Round Table (LPRT) and Triple Crown. LPRT was created in 1942 to recognize the successful underwriters of accident and health insurance. The NAHU LPRT committee is committed to making LPRT the premier program for top health, disability, long term care and worksite marketing insurance producers, carrier reps, carrier management, and general agency/agency managers. The 2019 LPRT application process is closed but it should be on your calendar to apply in 2020.
NAHU created the President’s Triple Crown Program to recognize those members whose individual contributions to NAHU help advance the association’s mission. Like baseball’s Triple Crown, it recognizes accomplishments in three key areas. Both LPRT and Triple Crown information is available on the NAHU website or contact your local chapter President for assistance.
