Christopher Labrecque, Managing Partner of Employee Benefits Group at Insurance Office of America (IOA) was featured in the September issue of i4 Business Magazine. Throughout the article Challenging the Healthcare Status Quo, Labrecque gives a comprehensive analysis of the challenges with the Affordable Care Act, the overall healthcare system and offers thoughts on how to confront the issues at hand. “Considering the healthcare system’s current challenges, a greater degree of entrenchment breakdown will need to occur by aligning the motives of those interested in more effectively serving the end user.” He goes on to stress the significance of forming alliances within the healthcare system. The YMCA of Central Florida, a community-based program, is driven towards goal of aiding to local healthcare. The alliance is further strengthened with the integration of Novo Nordisk, Florida Hospital, Orlando Health and Insurance Office of America into the alliance. Labrecque continues in saying, “As respective leaders in our fields of study and practice, we have a moral and ethical obligation to help foster this as we interdependently try to achieve something greater than ourselves.”
Labrecque believes there are two necessary ingredients for such a collaboration: transparency and success. Transparency equals trust and success “finds the ‘win’ in this alignment of the respected party.”’ In 2014 Labrecque was awarded partner of the year and this year he was nominated The Institute for Healthcare Consumerism’s Superstar Award as “Most innovative Broker/Advisor.” IOA is honored to have such a dedicated and hard- working Managing Partner amongst its ranks of professionals.
