In the Works

If you heard HTAA's Tom Smith live on the Extreme Truckers Radio Show then you know that the Affordable Care Act has implications for the un-insured Professional Driver. That is why HTAA is working on adding resources to the site to help you understand what these changes are and what it means for you. Starting October 1st, 2013 drivers will be able to enroll in health insurance coverage through their home state Exchange.  

If you want to learn more about the Affordable Care Act or the HTAA insurance program give us a call.
