    Pros

    Through all of the twists and turns of the Affordable Care Act and the changing rules of the game... HealthMarkets continues to know that the key to their success is the agent on the street! We are stock holders and corporate continues to bend over backward to put the tools and opportunities in your hands to help the agent succeed. I have heard horror stories about other insurance agencies and have been impressed by the incredible culture at HealthMarkets. How can you not succeed when the mission is to help your client obtain the best & most cost effective insurance to protect their families and businesses. As independent brokers, we are appointed to sell nearly every product available in the market place.

    Cons

    It can be a little overwhelming to take on the appointment with so many carriers and products. I would recommend focusing on one part of the business the first year and then add other products to your tool belt as you become more confident. Ex: Focus on the under 65 health insurance the first year and then add Medicare the 2nd year. The national marketing efforts are very effective and the number of leads that come your way can be almost overwhelming. You need to take on what you can handle and follow through on those.

    Advice to Management

    I have had nothing but the best experience with great sales leaders and territorial vice presidents. Great values and motivated in a very positive way to help you succeed.
