AHERN Insurance Brokerage is honored to have received the STAG ONE™ Agency designation from our partner carrier, The Hartford.

AHERN’s own Summer Gorsica, AHERN Vice President, was recently selected to throw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game! The prestigious honor of throwing out the first pitch was a result of Summer and AHERN being designated as a STAG ONE™ Elite Insurance Agency by The Hartford.

STAG ONE™ is an exclusive Small Commercial Rewards & Recognition program designed by The Hartford to recognize their most highly-partnered Small Commercial agents.  Being designated as a STAG ONE™ agency goes beyond production numbers; it’s about Hartford’s strongest partnerships, trust, and development of long-term mutual beneficial initiatives.

Summer has been pivotal in building the AHERN/Hartford relationship and is a big reason for AHERN earning the prestigious STAG ONE™ designation. Summer represents what STAG ONE™ is about – a strong representative for The Hartford and the local insurance industry, and was therefore nominated and selected to throw out the first pitch at The Hartford’s STAG ONE™ Suite Night event. And…. she threw a perfect pitch!! Congratulations, Summer!

In connection with law firm malpractice insurance however, these suits can present a trap for the unwary.  It is vital that no matter how “bogus” or “innocuous” such a suit appears (or indeed turns out) to be, each and every one of them must be reported to the firm’s current (and potential future) insurer, for the three major reasons.

The 2016 general election has had its fair share of twists and turns. On the Democratic side, we witnessed a titanic clash in the form of the moderate Democratic candidate, Secretary Hillary Clinton, and the more left-leaning Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.). Meanwhile, the Republican camp quickly turned into an “anyone’s game” situation, out of which emerged one of the most unlikely dark horses in electoral history: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Regardless of who ends up in the Oval Office next January, this much is certain: there exists a multitude of dynamics that could result in seismic shifts within the US healthcare system.
