Quote Technology to Simplify Your Role as a Health Insurance Broker

Posted: January 28, 2019 by Staff Writer

Quoting is an important part of your role as a Health Insurance broker (also often called a Health Insurance agent). It’s an integral component of your service to prospects and clients – whether your focus is Individual and Family Plan (IFP) coverage or Group Health Insurance.

An insurance quote is the cost estimate you supply to an individual or employer showing what each will pay monthly based on a variety of factors. For Small and Large Group quotes, the estimate is based on demographic and other information regarding members of the group to be insured:

  • the number of employees
  • whether dependent coverage is offered (and whether the employer pays for any portion of the dependent coverage)
  • the group’s selected plan design(s) – HMO, PPO, EPO, HDHP, etc.
  • the selected ACA metal tier(s) – Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum or a combination (if available, based on the health plan or exchange considered)
  • the ages of employees to be insured (and dependents, if applicable)
  • employees’ home ZIP Codes

The more information you get from your client, the more comprehensive your quote will be.
