2018 LEGISLATIVE CANDIDATE SURVEY RESULTS
With the implementation of the ACA - purchasing Insurance for your small business or family can be a daunting task. There are so many questions to be answered.
As we approach the date of critical state elections, CT AHU has surveyed all legislative candidates; both incumbents and challengers. The survey requested their response on a number of issues of great importance to our industry and members.
The candidates were given over one month to respond to our questionnaire and informed that all responses would be made available to our members. The number of responses we received was extremely disappointing. We have no definitive answer why legislative candidates failed to respond but it does point to the need to make our presence much better known in the legislature. This activity has to be carried out not only by our lobbyist but also, more importantly by our members. Direct contact with your individual legislators is not only important now, during the election, but all year long. Our experience is that the vast majority of legislators have never purchased health insurance and have very little idea of the important job we perform.
As members of CT AHU we need to continually educate them on the value of a broker. Please click the link below to view the survey results and see your your legislative candidate responded.
