Early Findings

How Brokers are Involved in Group Health Insurance for Businesses

  • A health insurance broker is an intermediary between businesses and health insurers, helping to match groups with a plan or company that is best suited to their needs.
  • Having a health insurance broker allows one to explore more options for group coverage, saving money for the business.
  • The broker cannot reduce prices because the health plan's prices are fixed. However, they can do all the groundwork for the business.
  • Brokers act in the client's best interest, helping them compare and secure coverage depending on their budget and needs.
