BOARDMAN, Ohio — What will replace the Affordable Care Act, if anything, upon its expected repeal is a major concern of Cailor Fleming Insurance.
“We are keeping a close watch on all potential changes in insurance, particularly health care,” says Trent Cailor, president of the agency.
Todd Mayle, who has an extensive background in health care, is “closely monitoring the issues surrounding the Affordable Care Act and its repeal or replacement,” Cailor says.
Mayle is taking the lead on health insurance issues following the retirement of owner/producer Jill Welsh at the end of 2016. “He will focus on developing new relationships and advising those clients currently under his management,” Cailor says.
For commercial clients, “The trending topic is cyber liability,” he reports. Don Foley, owner/producer, and Bill McMahon, account executive, have been speaking to businesses across the country – Cailor Fleming has clients in 49 states – by holding two-hour symposiums on cyber liability insurance.
Foley and McMahon recently held two such events in Boston, one to the American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association, which exclusively endorsed Cailor Fleming a sixth consecutive year.
Regarding personal lines of insurance, Cailor Fleming added State Auto to its list of carriers, and its agents “have been making sure the hundreds [of policyholders] are aware of the many discounts available to them,” Cailor says.
One discount, “Telematic” is drawing considerable interest because it “incorporates technology into [a policyholder’s vehicle] that reads how well and how safely they drive,” he says.
Policyholders who use Telematic can save up to 30% on their car insurance, and using the automatic payment feature can save up to $100 per policy, Cailor notes.
