Using a Health Insurance Broker

If you have used a broker to find your insurance before, you have a pretty good idea of what they do. Most people are used to the broker showing you some different options. After reviewing them, they help you get enrolled and all is well. Many people believe that after your enrolled, the relationship ends and you are on your own again. Some businesses or individuals may have a broker tied to their account, but do not know who that person even is. That is a problem. When using a health insurance broker, you should certainly be aware of who they are well after the initial enrollment. Your broker should be providing you will all year support for employee changes, issues and problems you face, and general questions about your plan.

Renewals

Most health insurance Nevada plans renew after a one year contract. This is a great time to look back at the year and decide how your insurance preformed. Are you happy so far? Did you use the plan much? Is there something new I will now need coverage for? These should all be questions your broker is asking you. Depending on your answers, it may be time to shop around for different coverage. Your broker should also be trying to save you money. Health insurance changes constantly and new plans and regulations could mean the difference between thousands saved in premiums. Don’t be stuck with a broker who simply shows you what your new rates are this year and asks you to sign.
