Buying Health Insurance?

Everyone needs medical care sometime, and the most common way to pay for it is through private health insurance coverage. While most Americans have some type of private coverage, the different types of insurance and how they work can be confusing and difficult to understand.

When you need to purchase health insurance, turning to a local insurance agent or broker is always a smart first step. Whether you're looking at health, dental, disability or long-term care, your agent or broker will help you identify the benefits that will satisfy your individual needs or the needs of your company. They not only look out for your bottom line, but they also work to make sure you get the products that are right for you.

Expertise matters

Professional health insurance agents and brokers provide the expertise you need to make the right choices. They are experts who:

  • know the market-by distinguishing the best products from the merely adequate
  • know the law-by reviewing state and federal legislation and regulations that impact the sale of health insurance products
  • know the industry-by completing stringent licensing requirements and continuing education courses

Your health insurance agent will help you:

  • review your unique needs
  • learn about different insurance companies and types of coverage that can satisfy your specific concerns
  • ease the burden on your time by doing the "legwork" for you
  • get the most from your coverage after you've bought it

Independent agents and brokers work for you--not any one insurance company. This ensures that your ongoing needs are their priority.
