5 Social Media Content Ideas for September

   5 Social Media Content Ideas for September  By: Michelle M. Saavedra September usually brings cooler days and nights. This fact also affects the type of content published on social media. During the summertime, insurance agents tend to create content that promotes their travel insurance products. But now that we are getting closer to OEP, insurance agents will start to shift their focus towards Medicare Advantage and ACA products. We believe that life, supplemental and even travel insurance are products that can be sold and promoted throughout the year. Imagine selling an ACA plan and then also having the opportunity to offer dental and vision products to the same client! That’s called working smarter, not harder. Before we start mentioning the 5 content ideas for the month of September, we invite you to get contracted with Agility Insurance Services today!

Inflation Reduction Act Passed

  Inflation Reduction Act Passed On August 12, 2022 the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was passed by the U.S. The House of Representatives and President Biden are expected to sign off on the bill. Already being passed by the Senate, the $740 billion budget reconciliation package includes Medicare drug pricing policies, Affordable Care Act (ACA) subsidies, climate, energy, and taxes.  Allowing Medicare to Negotiate Drug Prices The IRA enforces the Department of Health and Human Services(HHS) to establish a negotiation program in hopes to make expensive drugs, single sourced, and biological products more affordable. In this program, the HHS Secretary will produce a list of selected drugs that meet certain criteria, and negotiate maximum fair prices on these drugs with suppliers, then renegotiate as needed.

  5 Social Media Content Ideas for August By: Michelle M. Saavedra Before we start talking about content strategy for the month of August, we have a fun fact we would like to share with our Agility Agents. According to Richmond Times-Dispatch , the month of August was named after the first Roman emperor, Augustus Caesar. Insurance agents could learn a thing or two from Caesar (not to be confused with Little Caesars). Instead of battling out the usual sales tactics on social media, agents could take the time to create content that strengthens their online presence. One of the best ways to do this is by preparing a thought-out monthly content calendar plan. We’ve taken the necessary steps to identify 5 content pieces that any Agility Agent will be able to recreate and publish during the month of August.  1) Fun Facts Post Click here to get FREE access to the Fun Facts August Social Media template!

ACA Subsidy Extension

ACA Subsidy Extension Your health insurance cost could be on the rise. Projections of “double-digit spikes” are said to begin early 2023 for over 13 millions Americans. Low and middle income Americans are at risk of losing health insurance due to the cost rising to hundreds of dollars per person if the extended subsidies end at the end of the year. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) increased the ACA (Affordable Care Act) subsidies in 2021 and 2022. The enhanced subsidies were said to lead towards over 4 million new sign-ups a year. This extension ensured that low-income clients did not have to pay for premiums. The enhancement in subsidies is said to end at the end of 2022 due over $247.9 billion in federal spending if it becomes permanent. There has been debate for some time over the “economic spending legislation” but the Senate is proposing to keep the extension through 2025. For those who have been concerned about their extension for the enhanced subsidies, we have news for you
