8:00 AM - 11:00 AM | NABIP Workshop: Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangements (ICHRA) Certification Course

ICHRA is an evolution of the standard HRA. What makes ICHRA unique is that it can reimburse employees tax-free for individual health insurance premiums. This means employers may choose to forgo offering a traditional group health plan to employees. Instead, employees offered and accept an ICHRA, buy their own individual health insurance plan and receive tax-free premium reimbursement for some or all the cost. This plan -type puts employers in the driver’s seat. They design their plan, determine the participants, and establish the limits. 

This three-hour course provides benefits and insurance professionals the training to better advise employers (brokers, CPAs, Attorneys, consultants) and achieve a higher comprehension level of the ICHRA market. Join leading experts Mark Mixer and Annette Bechtold, REBC, ChHC, CIC HRA Council who will provide both a foundational framework and insight as to where ICHRAs are best utilized.

Course instruction will cover: 

  • Traditional Uses of HRAs and Reasons for Introduction for ICHRA
  • Federal Regulations
  • Interaction with Affordable Care Act – Affordability and Funding
  • The Individual Market
  • Employer Considerations for Viability
  • Interaction with ERISA
  • Operational Considerations
  • Broker Planning, Preparation and Considerations

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM | Opening Keynote - Bet on Yourself & You’ll Always Win: Overcoming Setbacks, with Molly Bloom

How do you come back from a failure? After the FBI arrested Molly Bloom and confiscated all her earnings from her poker business, she could have given up. Instead, she used the same lessons she learned from her father that led her to come back from back surgery to be ranked No. 3 in North America in moguls, to overcome this setback. She wrote the bestselling memoir, Molly’s Game, convinced Aaron Sorkin to write the screenplay, and the film earned an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. In this inspiring talk, Bloom will share true stories and life lessons showing that when you bet on yourself in business, you can always win.
