NU Online News Service, June 24, 10:50 a.m. – Eva Jean Fomalont, the new president of the National Association of Health Underwriters, Arlington, Va., says the health agents group will continue to speak up about major medical insurance issues, even though members are getting an increasing share of their income from the sale of ancillary benefits.
Fomalont, the sales manager for Delta Dental Plan of New Mexico, has spent a total of 16 years selling major medical coverage and other health benefits in New Mexico and Texas. She is a past president of NAHU’s Rio Grande local chapter and its New Mexico state chapter.
She succeeded Bynum Tuttle Jr., owner of an independent benefits brokerage in Greensboro, N.C. as president of NAHU.
Fomalont emphasized the importance of health agents as the people who not only understand and empathize with the health insurers but also speak up for the plan members.
One thing about health agents that has impressed Fomalont over the years is their commitment to the consumer.
