Bringing a Health Insurance Broker to Your Office: Is It Worth It?

by Evil HR Lady on February 14, 2017

Being a health insurance broker is all about plans and numbers and sales calls, so you might not think about inviting your broker to explain benefits to your employees. You should rethink that. A report from Harvard University estimated that people spend 1.1 billion hours on health care issues, which is a tremendous burden. Understanding what insurance you need and how your insurance works can cut down the amount of time you have to take away from work to handle health care. Bringing in a health insurance broker can help you help your employees.

Provide Detailed Information

Sure, you went over the available plans with a fine-tooth comb and picked the best plan for your office, but you don’t know nearly as much as your broker does. There may be a few employees who have unusual situations that you can’t address without picking up the phone and calling your insurance broker yourself. This is more efficient, and you can guarantee that the answer will be correct.

I highly recommend for any small to medium size employer. With just 115 benefited employees the cost of providing the expertise and services doesn’t warrant hiring a specialist.

Our broker was also a huge assist in navigating the Affordable Care Act and we’ll need guidance for its deconstruct.

They also provide a great contact and help network for the users on our plan which keeps me from lengthy call holds and frustrating transfers.
