One insurance provider tells us many of the questions customers have lately concern the new health care law and what it means for them.
It's a challenge, he says, even for those in the industry.
Jimmy Galloway with Galloway-Chandler-McKinney Insurance said, "A lot of questions and of course not all the law has been implemented. It's yet to be seen how it's going to be implemented. We're trying to stay ahead of the curve."
A lot of those at the conference are keeping an eye on how the November elections turn out.
Right now, Mississippi is developing its own health insurance exchange program.
