One-size-fits-all works really well for hats, but when it comes to healthcare coverage, that mentality ends up costing business owners A LOT of money. Why, you ask?  Well, chances are the last time you evaluated your company’s healthcare needs, your broker tossed a few non-personalized plan options your way and you chose the one you thought looked best. Maybe it was the cheapest? Provided the best value? Best Network for your area?  Whatever the case may be, you chose from a few cookie-cutter options tailored to the lowest common denominator and now, unfortunately, you’re paying a p ..read more

Recently, I have been spending a significant amount of time speaking with Wholesalers. Brokers, Carriers, and Third-Party Administrators, regarding the issues members of the Broker community are experiencing.
