Healthcare costs in the united states and alternative solutions

Attendees will receive 1 Continuing Education Credit 

This course will educate insurance agents and brokers on how our current health care system in the US presently functions and how it is funded. We will compare present funding from both tax supported and commercial sources as well as analize potential alternative costs of funding from a single tax source. We will also examine the impact of this potential funding change on our present tax xystem. Finally, we will examine the national appetite for the proposed alternate funding system and consider the steps involved in making this change.
