Here is the article that was in yesterday’s news:
[05/18/2011] Health Insurance Premiums are high enough and having to drive somewhere to buy it and pay over $4.00 a gallon is just adding cost to your health premiums. But thousands of people each day are taking control of their costs by going online to shop for health insurance. Not only do people usually save money on their insurance; but on time, gas, and aggravation it takes to go out and really shop for insurance at multiple companies.
Agencies like Insurance Medics are seeing an influx of consumers going on their website and seeking high deductible health plan in order to keep their health premiums down. Although low deductibles are preferred by most; with most people on a tight budget, opting for a higher deductible can mean the difference of affording insurance or going without!
Even people turning 65 or older going online and comparing supplements coverage to that of an Advantage plan, and even purchasing a senior health plan without leaving their family room. Insurance medics even took it a step further by conducting web conferencing with their clients. Clients can actually watch their broker shop for the best health plan. It makes the consumer comfortable knowing they are getting the best deal. These technological capabilities have multiple reasons; one is to promote transparency in broker shopping. So customers know they are getting unbiased advice and quotes. The other reason why Insurance Medics implemented the web conferencing was to enhance the consumer experience and differentiate from the competition. With millions of consumers going online, other insurance agencies and companies are trying to keep up with the trend, but Insurance Medics stays ahead.
