Plexus Partner Mitchell Andrews: In times of uncertainty, brokers need to provide clear direction

Hours after being sworn in Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order signaling his administration would "seek the prompt repeal" of the Affordable Care Act. How Congress and the Trump administration proceed from here remains to be seen. If changes come, employers and employees will be left to follow a new maze of regulations.

It's here that insurance brokers can make a big difference by providing straightforward, easy-to-understand guidance,  Plexus Partner Mitchell Andrews says.

Andrews was among the experts interviewed by Employee Benefit Adviser magazine for a story published Monday on the uncertainty stemming from Trump's election.

As Andrews told Employee Benefit Adviser, this isn't the first time the industry has dealt with change -- and it's incumbent upon brokers to take complex regulations and boil them down into the most salient need-to-know news for their employer partners.

As 2017 gets into gear, the need for employee benefits expertise and guidance should be crystal clear. For more on how The Plexus Groupe can help, contact a client executive at 847-307-6100 (Chicagoland), 972-770-5010 (Dallas) or 405-840-3033 (Oklahoma City).
