How a Health Insurance “Coach” Can Save You Time, Money, and Stress

How a Health Insurance “Coach” Can Save You Time, Money, and Stress

Imagine that you want to become a great tennis player. What would be the best way for you to learn the skills you’d need to compete?

You could read all the tennis books at the library. But that would take you a long, long time. Plus, general knowledge of the sport is not a substitute for individual instruction.

You could watch YouTube videos of other great tennis players and try to copy their moves. But what works for somebody else might not be right for you.

It’s not that watching professional tennis players or reading about the sport is a bad thing. It’s just that if you really want to become a great tennis player, your next move is obvious: you get a coach.

Only a coach can know your exact situation – your strengths, weaknesses, and goals.

Only a coach can tailor a training regimen to your specific needs.

Only a coach can make you the best tennis player you can possibly be.

And coaches aren’t just necessary for tennis newbies who want to master a decent backhand. As the LA Times put it, “the best tennis players in the world still need coaching.”

Coaching, of course, isn’t just limited to sports. In fact, the licensed agents of HealthMarkets Insurance Agency act as coaches to our customers, guiding them through the many available health insurance options and helping them choose the plan that is right for them.

You could read all the health insurance information pamphlets you can find. But how long will that take? Who will help you understand it – and will the information even be accurate and up to date?

You could try doing your own Internet research about various healthcare plans. But what is good advice for one person’s situation, may be bad advice for you.

It’s not that doing your own research is a bad thing. And you should always feel empowered to make the final decisions about your health insurance.  But if you don’t have to do it all by yourself, why would you? A licensed agent from HealthMarkets Insurance Agency can help coach you to the right plan at the right price for your specific needs.

Of course, there are a few differences between a personal tennis coach and your licensed HealthMarkets agent.

For one thing, a tennis coach will still make you do the work of improving your game.

At HealthMarkets Insurance Agency, our licensed agents don’t just guide you to the right plan – they do the work of finding it for you.

Also, your tennis coach will cost you money.

But at HealthMarkets Insurance Agency, our coaching comes at no cost to you.
