Allen Insurance and Financial is holding three free workshops for businesses and non-profits to help explain the impact of LD 1333, the new state law changing the health insurance landscape in Maine.
The workshops, free open to the public, will be held Tuesday, Aug. 23, at the Maine Lighthouse Museum in Rockland; Wednesday, Aug. 24, at the Lord Camden Inn in Camden and Thursday, Aug. 25, at the Ramada Inn in Ellsworth.
Each workshop will run from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Coffee and pastries will be served.
“There’s no more important time to learn about the state of the health insurance market and how LD 1333 impacts small- and medium-sized businesses and non-profits in Maine,” said Dan Wyman, employee benefits specialist at Allen Insurance and Financial, adding that the workshops will address changes required by LD 1333 and how LD 1333 will work alongside federal healthcare reform.
Allen Insurance and Financial, with offices in Camden, Rockland and Southwest Harbor, serves more than 600 companies and non-profits, large and small, from Kittery to Calais, with their employee benefits needs. For more information about these workshops, call Sherree Craig at 800-439-4311.
In addition to a question-and-answer session, the workshops will address:

- Important deadlines.
- What the future may hold.
- Resources to learn more and to stay up-to-date on the issue.
