Join the MBA Insurance Agency for a free workshop on Tuesday, Dec. 18

No Health Insurance yet? What penalities will you need to pay beginning Jan. 1, 2007?

Find out at the MBA Insurance Agency's free workshop on Tuesday, Dec. 18 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the MBA, 20 West St., Boston.
 
Massachusetts Health Reform requires that all uninsured residents of the commonwealth obtain health insurance. If you are not covered by your spouse's plan or by an employer sponsored plan and have not purchased health insurance on your own, you will lose your personal tax exemption for 2007. The penalties for 2008 are much greater and are certain to get your attention.
 
The purpose of this seminar/workshop is to give you the necessary information to make informed decisions about your health insurance. If you have employees for whom you provide health insurance, we will let you know what your responsibilities are to them. This luncheon meeting will cover the following:

  • General outline of the rules governing health reform;
  • Your responsibility to obtain health insurance;
  • Sources for coverage - names and numbers;
  • Sample plans and sample rates; and
  • Questions and answers.

Speakers:
Terence J. Welsh, CPCU, AIS
President, MBA Insurance Agency, Springfield
 
Robert A. Levitt, CLU, CHFC
MB Insurance, LLC, Springfield

There is no cost to attend this workshop. Lunch will be provided.
