When you are trying to buy a health insurance policy, you’ll obviously need to know what the various plan benefits will provide you and what the premium cost will be. How would you find out what those monthly premium costs and policy benefits are?
You could go to the Yellow Pages and start calling the health insurance agents near you, but you probably won’t do that. You’re an “Internet person” — that’s why you’re reading this blog post right now. So instead of finding your copy of the Yellow Pages, you’ll most likely go to Google or Yahoo or some other search engine and do a search for something like “tucson arizona health insurance,” if you live in Tucson. Then you will be presented with, as of this writing, about 14,000,000 results.
You’ll probably find a listing that you like on the first page of the results screen and click on it. If you end up clicking on the typical page, you’ll be asked to complete a form asking for your age, sex, Zip code, and who you want to insure. Then you’ll hit the “SUBMIT” button and wait for the next screen. And one way or another, that next screen may surprise you.
You might get a screen saying “Thank you for your request. We will have an agent (or even up to eight agents!) contact you shortly,” even though you thought you were going to be presented with a screen with monthly rates. Or you might get a screen with literally hundreds and hundreds of different rates and options that will completely confuse you.
At Lehrman Group, we offer you several options. We can send you an email with detailed policy descriptions and rates about one hour after you complete our online form, or we can instantly present you with a screen describing different Arizona health plan options and rates. Or you can give us a call at 1-800-600-9663.
We have been in the health insurance business in Arizona since 1988 (our website has been online since before Google was in business), and we were the first health insurance brokers in Arizona offering rates through the Internet.
In our experience, looking at email rates is much less confusing for our clients. We think you may like to be able to see what your costs will be as quickly as possible, but experience has shown us that a very large majority of our clients actually prefer to receive their rates via email. Emailed rates take longer than watching them just ‘pop up’ on your computer screen instantly, but each rate is accompanied by a detailed description of the major points of the policy, and you’ll have the option to come back to them later, or even print your quotes out and study them at your leisure. You’ll be able to compare rates and plan options much more easily.
At Lehrman Group, we give you the option of receiving your rates any way you’d like. To receive a health insurance rate quote describing the various health insurance policies available in Arizona, whether instant or emailed to you, visit our Arizona health insurance web page, or call us at (800) 600-9663.
