Member Benefit ~ Affordable Health Insurance

Marsh, LLC, the world’s largest global insurance broker and risk management adviser, has collaborated with NAHB to give members exclusive access to affordable health care insurance coverage through the Health Insurance Services affinity program at http://Marsh.NAHBExchange.com.
Launching Nov. 2, this secure website allows you and your family to shop for a range of benefits options-from major medical, short-term medical, and Health Savings Account plans, to income protection, critical illness, dental, vision, life insurance (including term and whole policies), and accidental death and dismemberment plans.
Use decision-support tools available on the website to compare plan options and costs. Then dial a toll-free number, or click online to receive a call to the number of your choice, to talk to a licensed counselor for personalized support. The counselor will answer your questions, walk you through your options, and hold your hand through the decision-making and benefits enrollment process.
All plans offered through the Individual Exchange are compliant with the Affordable Care Act and meet the requirements of the law’s individual mandate (which states that most Americans must have health insurance coverage or pay a tax penalty).
Open enrollment, your once-a-year opportunity to enroll in medical insurance coverage for 2016, began Nov. 1, 2015  and runs through Jan. 31, 2016. If individuals choose not to enroll during this open enrollment window, they will have to wait until the fourth quarter of 2016 to sign up for medical coverage for 2017.
Members, employees and families can check out the health insurance solutions available by visiting http://Marsh.NAHBExchange.com or calling 855-292-8849 to speak with a licensed health insurance counselor.

Call to Action ~ Wetlands of the United States

An Environmental Protection Agency water rule is vastly expanding federal jurisdiction for areas that are required to obtain Section 404 building permits. This will worsen an already huge backlog, making it much more difficult and costly for home builders to provide safe and affordable housing – learn more here.
 
On Wednesday, Nov. 4, the Senate is expected to vote on the Federal Water Quality Protection Act (S. 1140), legislation that will overturn this rule and bring sanity to the federal permitting process.  Passage of this legislation is essential to achieve a federal permitting process that is easy to understand, timely and focused on meaningful protection for our nation’s water resources and we need your help!
 
Stop Unnecessary Federal Overreach that is Hurting Home Builders
What Can You Do to Help? ACT NOW!
The best solution to overturn the rule is for Congress to act. The House approved similar legislation earlier this year (H.R. 1732, the Regulatory Integrity Protection Act). Through the collective grassroots efforts of the entire Federation, NAHB has been working for months to get this bill to the Senate floor. Our hard work has paid off, but we need your help to get this legislation across the goal line.
With the Senate vote quickly approaching, time is of the essence.

Call to Action:
Urge your Senators to:
  • To support S. 1140, the Federal Water Quality Protection Act
