Why Work With An Independent Broker?
Independent Brokers work on behalf of you the client when researching and shopping the marketplace locating the product best suited to your needs. We are not employed as sales representative for a particular carrier. We are contracted and licensed by several carriers in the marketplace for various types of coverage you may need. We provide you with cost comparisons and doctor matching by each carrier quoted. We understand the importance of having a doctor you feel comfortable with and take pride in helping you maintain that doctor patient relationship!
Our commitment is to you the client and that’s were our loyalty remains. We negotiate coverage terms, request rate discounts and make the carriers fight for your business! That’s the true nature of a good independent agency and a broker with the clients best interest in mind.
Why Work With Inclusive Benefits?
We approach the business of risk management by developing trusted relationships, learning about the challenges and concerns each client is facing. We are not product or transaction driven when meeting with clients. We interview, consult and advise on the products and services that will achieve the goals of each individual client. Unfortunately, many brokers lose sight of maintaining and fostering relations with their clients and only focus on selling a product. We consistently meet with HR staff, hold quarterly employee meetings and host new hire workshops on benefit & features offered, plan design and other added value benefits they may not be aware of like gym reimbursement, nutrition counseling and diabetes education. We are very interactive when it comes to the business employee benefits.
