Nick Cain

Nick Cain, the subject of one of our first cover stories, has been in the insurance industry for 42 years. So it’s safe to say he has an ample amount of experience from which we all can learn. Cain started CEVA Benefits in Pilot Point, Texas, and quickly became one of the most trusted voices in the employee benefits industry. He’s become recognized as an authority in not only core benefits, but a voluntary specialist, an expert in Medicare, and now has expanded into the P&C business. He’s transitioned his business model from primarily a voluntary consultant and enrollment entity to one that now covers a broad spectrum of employers’ and employees’ needs.

Don’t resist. With the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, a lot of companies and brokers knew there would be change, but some of the brokers and carriers that think they are immune may be in for a surprise. We thought it wise to expand into other markets within the industry so we’ve increased our penetration into P&C, expanded our Medicare department and brought on experts in each field. This diversification is so key because we can really be a one stop shop for our clients—no matter the size firstly, but secondly, with Obamacare, the next step could be mandating STD coverage, etc., and then they start regulating who gets paid. The old proverb could hold true here, once the camel gets his nose in the tent, what’s to stop him from coming all the way in.
