Maybe the better question is: Are the big name health insurance company quotes any better than others? In some instances they may well be, if you happen to be working from the point of view of managing an existing condition, and can prove it. This, of course, goes with certain riders or waivers. They may also have some deals for you – but – having said that READ THE FINE PRINT.
Big name companies aren’t as flexible in offering you various options that may make your health care quote much more personal. They are a big box company and what they offer, they offer, period. This is a little like using brand name drugs. Just because it’s a big brand name doesn’t mean they/it are going to be better for you.
Smaller companies tend to offer better, more personal service because they are genuinely happy to have you as a customer. They are there to help you get what you need. So go for the personal service and better rates. You’ll be happy you did, and so will your checkbook.
