Everything Old…

Regular readers may recall this from a few years back:

Due to the significant changes carriers have made to their compensation schedules (aka commissions), I don�t believe that I can continue to offer the kind of comprehensive service to which I, and you, have become accustomed.”

I still do the annual re-certification, and dabble in the individual market as needed (current clients, referrals, that kind of thing).

Recently, Senator Iron Eyes Elizabeth Warren had this observation about folks like me under her #Medicaid4All plan:

Q: Where do those who work in health insurance go when private insurance is eliminated?

Sen. Warren: “No one gets left behind. Some of the people currently working in health insurance will work in other parts of insurance. In life insurance, in auto insurance, in car insurance.” pic.twitter.com/KGJ4Eg9VKR

Hunh.

It’s true that home and auto insurance share a common principle:

Yes, they are both predicated on the principle of “indemnification,” but then so are disability and homeowners insurance.”

But that’s where it ends. For one thing, they are two completely different licenses, and markets, and marketing strategies.

For another, she seems to be forgetting all the support folks at various home offices, not to mention plan administrators and the like. And of course, this also means the end of Medicare Supplement and Advantage plans (why does her party keep throwing seniors under the bus?).

And, of course, there’s the matter of how much this whole shebang’s going to cost.

But hey: details, shmetails.
