Important Information for IEC Members

Healthcare is an ongoing challenge for you, Federated and most importantly – your members.  As you are aware, President Obama recently signed a law change to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that cancelled the redefinition of “small groups”. 

The attached communication piece is meant to help your association members address this important issue so we encourage you to communicate this with them if you haven’t already.  Please call your Account Executive with any questions. We appreciate our partnership with your association and look forward to continuing our work with you in providing your members with the very best insurance and risk management services.
