California Health Insurance Agent's Role in Helping You Find Insurance
Matts Ventura California Life and Health Insurance Service
California health insurance agents help provide a very important service to both the health insurance consumer and the insurance company. Services which include helping the consumer find and understand the right health insurance plans, Medicare Supplement, Medigap Insurance, Dental Insurance and even Life Insurance that meets the consumers’ needs and is affordable enough to fit their budget. And, for the insurance company, the agent has been the primary method for the distribution of the health insurance company’s private health insurance plans to the consumer.
Recent increases in the costs of health insurance have made the agent an ever more key part of the health insurance buying equation. More than ever, an individual, a family and even a small business rely on the advice and guidance of their health insurance agent to get a quote find an affordable plan that will provide sufficient benefits.
Health insurance agents are similar to elected officials in that they are held responsible to their constituents. Because, in California, an agent who is not providing a good service can be replaced by another agent at any time. Health insurance agents are for all intents and purposes up for re-election everyday. To keep their clients happy, agents must be familiar with many different types of health plans, know of their clients’ needs and budget and see that their clients are appropriately satisfied.
Value of the California Health Insurance Agent
All rates for your California health insurance are regulated by the state. The premium is the same weather you use an independent agent or if you go directly through the insurance carrier. The compensation earned by the health insurance agent not only compensates for the sale of a health plan but, in addition, professional independent agents perform these other valuable services for the health insurance consumer:
Health Insurance Agents -- Trained Professionals
California requires all agents to be licensed and regulated by the state insurance department. California health insurance agents are required to take state approved courses in insurance and insurance law. After passing the pre-licensing courses, prospective agents must take and pass a written exam at a local government office. In addition, the state of California requires continuing education (30 hours every two years) in order for an agent to maintain his or her license.
