What does an independent insurance agent look for in a health insurance carrier? That was the question addressed by PIA National Secretary/Assistant Treasure Johnny Lee in an article in the September issue of Best's Review magazine entitled, "Redeeming Qualities: What agents and brokers look for when selecting a health insurance carrier partner."

"I won't pick a plan that does not have a good list of doctors and hospitals in the area available for my customers," said Lee, a principal of Lee-Curtis Insurance in Fredericksburg, Virginia. "We look for carriers with offerings such as HMOs, PPOs, deductible options and different prescription cards available on their programs. When it comes to distinguishing one health carrier from another, it typically boils down to the level of claims service and customer service they provide."
