Using a health insurance agent to find a plan

Use a health insurance agent to find your plan

Since you have access to the marketplace, why would you ever want to deal with a health insurance agent?

There are lots of options when it comes to healthcare coverage and trying to navigate all the jargon and coverage to find the perfect fit can take lots of time and effort.

Partnering with a local health insurance agent not only saves time, but their help does not cost you any extra money. So, if you’re looking for an individual plan or are a business owner looking for a group plan, we’ll explain why using an agent is going to be your best bet for finding the best coverage.

Health insurance agents must fulfill education requirements

To become a licensed agent, there are lots of requirements to meet and exams to pass. Without breaking into legalese, an insurance agent must meet federal and state regulatory requirements, act in an ethical matter, and provide you with proper disclosures.

All licensed agents also have to:

  • Pass a licensing exam
  • Complete a state-approved insurance course
  • Be fingerprinted
  • Pass a background check
  • Be approved by your state’s department of insurance

Typically, there are also ongoing education requirements that have to be completed in order to get a licensed renewed.

All this to say, a licensed health insurance agent should know what they’re doing. Sure, some may try to push an unnecessary policy on you. But, the easy way to find out they do that is to check their reviews!

Our services are free

You do not pay an insurance agent anything for their help. Your premium will be no different if you get your plan on your own vs. using an agent, either. So, why not save all the time and hassle and use our free help?

In fact, there is a stipulation in the Affordable Care Act known as the 80/20 rule that stated insurance companies must spend at least 80 percent of the money they receive from health insurance premiums on healthcare costs. The other 20 can go towards administrative costs which include commissions.
