When you get personal service it stands out, doesn’t it? You bet it does, and even more so when you get the inside information or “scoop” on what would work the best for you and your family health care needs. Knowing which hospitals honor their claims, and which don’t, which doctors offer what services and which ones don’t, is really valuable information when it comes to buying health insurance. A local insurance agent knows this and more and in telling you these things, you have become a person with a name and a family, and not just a number.
Large online health care providers don’t usually offer too much in the way of personal service because many of them aren’t even in your home state. Check it out some day. Many of them are several states away and have no clue about the local networks in your community. So, when you find a health insurance agent that knows their stuff and the local community, stick with them for better service.
