I had a call the other day from Mountain View and we discussed his health insurance options with companies such as Blue Shield, Anthem Blue Cross, Health Net, and Kaiser. He started the conversation very distraught but we ended it on a good note.
He wanted to get health insurance for his family and their COBRA insurance is running out this October 1st, 2012. He had tried applying for Cigna, Anthem, and Aetna and was unsuccessful in all attempts. He has the money to pay for a medical plan, he just can’t get approved. I assured him this was quite normal, that health insurance reform was taking care of some of these issues. Unfortunately it IS normal for these things to happen, but that’s why you use a broker.
He went online and tried signing up through Anthem without any help from a broker. Brokers are free no matter which plan you go with! That’s why here at Brauer Insurance Services we love helping clients– we know our services are built into the prices and individuals and families don’t need to worry if they are paying “extra” for our service.
Give us a call at our San Jose office anytime! (408) 421-5555
