Opening Day of Affordable Care Act's Marketplace Debut Marks iCan Benefit Group's All-Time Sales Record

26,000 Calls Received in a Two Day Period Shattered Previous Sales Records

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 16, 2013) - The Affordable Care Act's highly anticipated health insurance Marketplaces (formerly known as the health insurance exchanges) opened nationwide on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. These Marketplaces provide all Americans a chance to compare and purchase health plans. Unfortunately, these Marketplaces were inundated with visitors and were ill-equipped to handle the massive amounts of traffic; almost all users experienced difficulty while trying to shop for plans.

Some of these consumers, who have been seeking affordable health insurance for some time, decided to simply give up; others, it seems, turned to industry leaders in affordable healthcare to learn more about affordable coverage options both on and off health insurance Marketplaces.

Although iCan Benefit has been educating consumers on the rapidly-changing healthcare system since the Affordable Care Act's passage in 2010, recent marketing campaigns run by iCan Benefit's media team have raised awareness and educated thousands on healthcare reform and insurance options.

The team, led by Mark Longaro, spent months educating consumers through all mediums of the healthcare options available through both the Marketplaces and iCan Benefit.

A sudden influx of inbound calls occurred early Monday morning, with consumers eager to learn more about plans on the exchange and plans offered by iCan Benefit itself. iCan's team of licensed insurance agents and Certified Healthcare Reform Specialists fielded nearly 26,000 calls in a two day period, shattering previous sales records. More importantly, iCan was able to provide affordable coverage to a large number of these 26,000 Americans who depended on these agents to guide them through the process.

"The entire team was in utter disbelief. We could not believe the amount of consumers calling in to learn more about affordable healthcare, even with the debut of the Affordable Care Act's Marketplaces. We're glad to have impacted the health of these Americans in a positive way." - Stephen Tucker, CEO of iCan Benefit Group
