They don’t help Utahns compare all of their options.
Healthcare.gov and insurance companies don’t let Utahns see all their plan options. And while traditional health insurance brokers may mean well, they’re biased. They work on commission. So they often focus on a sale instead of ensuring consumers find the best coverage at the best price.
They don’t help Utahns use and manage their coverage.
Healthcare.gov doesn’t help consumers after they buy coverage; it’s only a shopping tool. Insurance companies don't help consumers maximize their benefits; doing so would reduce profits. And insurance brokers don’t deliver ongoing service; they’re salespeople.
They don’t deliver the service Utahns are already paying for.
There’s a hidden secret that makes the status quo even crazier. Utah consumers are already paying for a third-party "agent" to help year-round. The insurance company sets aside a small fee each month to pay an agent to help level the playing field. This “agent fee” is included in all insurance "premiums", whether the consumer has an agent or not.
