Angela Williams, compliance manager with RWI Benefits, is now certified through the National Association of Health Underwriters’ (NAHU) new professional development course on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). This continuing education course for agents has been approved in all 50 states.
Williams completed this comprehensive course as part of the RWI Benefits goal of remaining current with the most up-to-date information on the key technical components of PPACA. This certification, along with other PPACA educational seminars and webinars, helps prepare Angela Williams and RWI Benefits to assist their clients when addressing the many mandatory healthcare changes tied to the Affordable Care Act.
“By taking this course, Williams has joined an elite group who is uniquely qualified to assist clients in complying with the new law,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein. “She understands how the market is likely to change over the next few years, and is in the perfect position to assist families and businesses in planning for the future.”

“Are you prepared for a PPACA audit? Most companies are unaware that they can be fined by the IRS or Department of Labor for up to $10,000 per transaction for being out of compliance with PPACA regulations. Three out of four audited plans have violations,” said Robert Weaver, president of RWI Benefits. “Now is the time to act on compliance--because warriors don’t wait.”
