Buckeye Updates: COBRA and CE

Good news for folks on "mini-COBRA" plans: Gov Strickland has signed a bill extending coverage eligibility for an additional 3 months (from 12 to 15).

Meanwhile, licensed agents got some welcome news: our mandatory CE requirements have increased only 17% (to 24 hours every 2 years). And, we now have an Ethics Requirement (previously, Ohio agents were considered so above reproach that this was deemed unncessary). The new regs require three hours of ethics education; there's also a new, mandatory federal background check for new licensees.
