WebCE Releases Two New Courses Covering the 2010 Healthcare Reform Act

by WebCE | Jan 03, 2011

WebCE, the leading nationwide provider of continuing education for insurance professionals, is the first to offer two new courses on the 2010 Healthcare Reform Act. Both courses were specifically created to provide insurance producers with up-to-date information on the 2010 Healthcare Reform Act and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The courses are titled Healthcare Reform: Critical Aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and Legislative Update: 2010 Health Care Reform Act. Both are available for insurance continuing education in most states, and are expected in all states soon.

"WebCE understands the importance of quality CE material that covers timely topics like the Healthcare Reform Act," said Anne Shropshire, CLU, and WebCE's Director of Content. "That is why we developed two courses on the subject that give our customers educational resources to help explain the new Healthcare Reform Act and highlight the significant changes that will affect the insurance industry."

Healthcare Reform: Critical Aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: The course begins with a discussion of "grandfathered" health plans: their definition and the implications of grandfathered status for the timing and applicability of the act's provisions. It then addresses the requirements of the law that relate to patient protections -- the new limitations on the ability of health plans to exclude coverage for pre-existing conditions, to impose annual and lifetime benefit limits for essential health benefits, and to rescind health coverage. Healthcare Reform: Critical Aspects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is available online and has been approved in 22 states for life and health insurance CE credit.

Legislative Update: 2010 Health Care Reform Act: The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Health Care Reform, will have a substantial impact on the insurance industry, health care providers, employers, and individuals. This course provides an overview of the laws' provisions with specific implications for insurance companies and insurance producers. Legislative Update: 2010 Health Care Reform Act is available online and has been approved in 17 states for life and health insurance CE credit.

Both courses can be purchased individually or added to a bundle of insurance CE courses. WebCE also offers corporate programs and group discounts for large orders. All orders include: online course material, online exam, instant grading, and an electronic printable certificate of completion. Next-day roster reporting is also included in most states at no additional charge. Go to https://www.webce.com or call 877-488-9308 for more information.
