As a practice owner, you understand that employee health insurance and other benefits are a necessary expense to maintain a quality staff. But think about the quality of those benefits, as well as the level of service you receive from your agent. Does it feel like you are getting the best value and service for the price you pay?
For example, when managing health insurance benefits for your employees, does a great deal of the burden fall to your practice - particularly your office manager or other staff? Does this negatively impact the smooth operation of your practice?
Negative Impacts of Inadequate Support
Employee stress and time away from patients - Your medical practice may have received support when you first enrolled in your health insurance plan. But has your support been the same when service was required? Does your practice receive assistance when one of your employees needs help, or is this left up to you to manage - adding to your already extensive ‘to do’ list?
Spending more, receiving less - What is more, your agent may just be waiting for you to renew your current health insurance coverage without contacting you, may not offer a range of options for you, or they may not inform your practice on a regular basis that other insurance plans may offer improved benefits or may be less costly. This may result in your practice paying more than it needs to for lesser-quality insurance.
As an advocate for the well-being of your practice, do you think it’s time for things to change - or at least to explore better options?

Ways We’re Helping Texas Medical Practices
Last year, during Health Insurance Open Enrollment, we were pleased to help medical practices find the right health insurance options for their needs. Here are a few examples:
- Some practices were able to offer their employees group PPO and HMO health insurance options.
- Certain practice owners were able to get group PPO insurance for themselves.
- Some practices were able to offer their employees group HMO insurance options and realize cost savings over their existing coverage.
Our health insurance advisors have decades of experience assisting Texas medical practices and can develop a cost-effective health insurance program that’s best for your group.
