Over the last three years, web brokers like eHealthInsurance, GetInsured, and HealthSherpa have effectively competed with the government-backed exchange for business. Now, they’re looking to President Donald Trump and his administration to shift the task of enrolling Americans in health plans back to the private sector. But first, companies are looking for a little clarity on the future of the health insurance market. “The uncertainty is the biggest problem,” George Kalogeropoulos, CEO of HealthSherpa, told The Daily Signal. “There are ways to make it work, but it’s just a question of not … Read entire article »
