    1. You may only rely on the printed word with a bonafide citation to actual law or relevant brochure… not anything that we may have said, interpreted or that you think we said.   We will email them to you after the meeting, if they were not in what we sent prior to the meeting.

  8. There is NO Charge for meeting with you.  We are compensated by the Insurance Companies to help you.  If they don’t pay us, they have to pay their employees to it.
    1. There are times, when people ask us to do research, tutoring and education and since the Insurance Company won’t be paying us, like if they are getting coverage from their employer, other insurance agents, attorney’s, they feel they are obligated to buy from their cousin in the business, Medi Cal, SSI, etc. that you can pay us directly for our time.  Click here to learn more.
      1. Questions in the FAQs / Ask Us a Question  are done at no charge, as they are mutually beneficial, you get an answer, we get a more robust and informative website.

We are still here. We’ve been forced to be efficient. Many of the brokers who have left the market – refer clients to us

  1. I’m trying to show you a picture [screen shot] of my coverage, [and COBRA offer] but I don’t have the 1-sheet summary of coverage.

    I can, however, go online [to my employers portal] and click separately into every coverage category to show you coverage.

  2. Sorry, I wasn’t happy with our phone meeting yesterday.

    I am in an extremely busy time and I’m used to concise answers to what I would think is a basic question.

    I asked you for thirty minutes of attention to clarify some basic questions. Whenever I ask you a question you refer me to your website. I hate your website.

    I find it extremely difficult to navigate and it seems geared to answer the questions of people with different concerns than me.

    • Your question is very similar to another question we had. Please see that Q & A here.

      The way ACA, Obamacare & Trumpcare work, I’m even busier. Under ACA there are no basic questions.

      If you don’t like my website, we are probably not a match. That is why I don’t give out my phone # readily, and when other agents or clients ask if they can refer me business, I ask that they only give my website and not my phone number.

      In fact, I’m going to see if Covered CA would give me that same courtesy.

  3. Why do you request documents that the Insurance Company or Covered CA sent to me.

    Don’t you have them in your agent portal?

    Don’t you just know off the top of your head, everything that the Insurance Companies or Covered CA does?

    • So that we know exactly what we are talking about. Justice Frankfurter said we have to read a law, bulletin, letter, Insurance Policy, whatever 3 times and then when we think we understand it, read it again. https://healthlaw.healthreformquotes.com/plain-meaning-rule/

      We don’t have a whole lot in the agent portal and it’s difficult to look it up while on the phone. Even when we do, if the information is there, I just don’t like putting clients on hold, while we review the information.

      If you want a correct answer with documentation or citation that it’s correct, we are the agent for you. If you just want to call the Insurance Company, Covered CA, other agents or your friends and take any answer based on how the wind is blowing, we are not a good fit.

      Even if I do know the answer, I want to double check so that we all know how the CORRECT answer was arrived at.
