Education Opportunities in a Growing Career Field
Healthcare is one of the nation's fastest growing employment fields. The number of licensed health insurance agents in the U.S. is set to be out-paced by the growing demand for their services – particularly to support the 70 million Baby Boomers currently aging into Medicare eligibility.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, "Employment of insurance sales agents is expected to increase by 12 percent over the 2008–18 period. Sales of health insurance, long-term-care insurance, and other comprehensive financial planning services designed specifically for the elderly are expected to rise sharply as the population ages."
