As we approach the end of 2016, many of us will look back and reflect on our successes and failures from the past year. It is important to remember that success is a subjective term and only you can define success. For some it may be a certain level of earnings and industry position, for others it may be an ideal work-life balance that allows them to earn enough to pay the bills and still have time for themselves and family. Whatever your idea of success is, be sure it is defined and measurable. One cannot find out where they are going if they do not have a destination in mind. Consider #ThatBusinessShow a resource for you and your business in 2017. Get involved today and learn more at www.tbsinterview.com on how to get on the program!
Opening up the program today was returning guest, Bob McKnight, Owner of McKnight & McKnight Insurance Solutions. Bob specializes in health insurance sales and has been in business for 16 years. Ironically, Jamie and Bob attended Florida Southern College together back in the late 90s and re-connected just last year after Bob booked an appearance on the program. The focus of the #MorningDiscussion was Open Enrollment and some of the challenges and changes that the new Healthcare Law is having on consumers. This year, consumers are experiencing premium increases that range anywhere from 20 to 50 percent depending on State. Bob talks with us about why this is occurring and how many health insurers have left Florida, leaving Florida Blue as the primary insurer for the State. Bob talks about how many brokers have had to re-invent themselves too because of the changes in how health insurers compensate brokers, forcing many out of business or into other areas of insurance. Bob’s business is solid because of his follow up and his database that he has worked to develop over 16 years. This dedication to excellence has allowed him to remain competitive in this market and become a specialist in health insurance whereas many brokers offer this in addition to other insurance services. Bob explains that the primary people benefiting from the new law are single people making under $47,000 a year on average and families making under $90,000 annually. Jamie notes that no guest has come onto the program and touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act and how it has helped their business too.
Bob talked about the uncertainties now facing the ACA with the change in administration and touches on the subsidy and how that works too. Bob encourages anyone in need of assistance with Healthcare options for 2017 to contact him. He can assist you with HealthCare.Gov too and is paid by the insurer so the service is free to you the consumer!
