As we approach the end of the first month of the health insurance exchange, PRNewsWire posted an article about a service some insurance brokers can now use.:
“HealthPlan ServicesSM (HPS), the nation’s leading technology, sales, retention and administrative services provider for the insurance and managed care markets, is celebrating successful go-live of its Go-To-Exchange SM platform, a comprehensive suite of services designed to streamline carrier participation in insurance marketplaces… including those in California, Colorado and Maryland…an accomplishment made more significant by the ongoing technical difficulties with Federal websites and call centers that led to sluggish enrollment nationwide.”
What this means is that participating insurance brokers now have one place to go to help clients find the best health insurance coverage for the lowest price, much like the health insurance exchanges are set up to do for consumers. Since some consumers have had difficulty with navigating the Federal exchange, this provides a significantly improved option for consumers.
“Go-To-Exchange enables carriers to successfully manage the administrative and technical aspects of State and Federal marketplaces.”
Although we are not part of Go To Exchange, our own George Geldin is a Certified Insurance Agent on California’s Covered California website, which is the state’s exchange. Since the link on the site to agents is not yet in operation, if you are in California and need assistance in ensuring that you have the best coverage at the lowest cost, please complete the form below and he will be in touch with you right away!
