I’m Here and I’m Yours! At Least For Now

Some politicians would like to drive health insurance brokers out of business and replace them with distant government bureaucrats or, even worse, off shore customer (dis)service reps.   These critics claim that removing agents from the plan-choosing process would trim the administrative costs of insurance without significantly impacting ordinary consumers.   They’re wrong, wrong, wrong!

Although there is great deal of support from both sides of the aisle, it would help to have some more solid evidence that agents and brokers do more than just help with the initial sale.  (You do like what I do for you, don’t you?) Legislators want proof that what they’re doing is right.   Washington needs some real stories, and they need them NOW.   If you can tell your own story, that’s great.  Please tell me how having a health insurance broker on your side has positively impacted your life.  (Of course, if you want to mention The Insurance Mom specifically, that’s great, but it’s not necessary.)

E-mail your comments to Alison@TheInsuranceMom.com and I’ll forward your personal story to those in Washington who need to know!

And here’s a BIG hug from your own personal Insurance Mom! (((((((….))))))
