There is a new service called independent evaluators that focuses on helping business owners and their employees. This new service changes the purchase paradigm by offering a business owner their own buyer’s advocate. A good advocate puts control in the owner’s hands, giving them back control they may have inadvertently given away.
Here are the top four reasons to consider a healthcare buyer’s advocate:
Consider the following questions:
Do you have an employee benefit plan that you self-fund?
Are you responsible for purchasing stop-loss coverage to protect your employer interests?
Is your broker experienced with hundreds of cases that provide you comfort they know what they’re doing?
Are you a broker who is trusted by a client but need an expert to help you keep that trust?
Is the person purchasing stop-loss for your business relying upon an inexperienced agent, broker, or consultant to make the right recommendation? Continue reading “Purchasing Stop-loss Insurance for your Self-funded Plan Requires An Expert”
A few weeks ago I went on the March for Life in D.C. Then, yesterday, we protested Planned Parent Hood’s abortion practice. Joyful was the sleepless three-day trip for the March for Life and by incredible contrast, how overwhelmingly sad was yesterday standing up for life at the Planned Parenthood clinic.

The Rally helps me see hope in our future through the eyes of our youth; I have been seven times. I’m honored to listen to the hearts and minds of the forty-seven High School students who intuitively know there is something good about giving a voice to the unborn.

Sunday seems to be a good day to reflect and be at peace. Something that is harder to do now in our connected world. So, why not, for a moment, stop and think about all the good that has come to you.
Me, well, I am grateful to God, he has been exceedingly good to me, my wife Linda, my 3 boys, family, and friends. We are safe, healthy and well fed, we have generously given our time, talent and treasure to help others and tried to follow him every day.
Sunday’s were joyful and peaceful
Sunday’s, when I was young, were spent with my family, Grandparents, and cousins. There was no agenda, no internet, no cell phones, no fast food, no shopping, no texts, no interruptions. The surroundings were peaceful themselves; most stores were closed, traffic was lite. It was around the world a day of rest. Yes, Sunday was a day to meander through, to enjoy, to pray, be grateful and play. We were connected but not to “stuff” but something bigger. God was present, and so was his grace, peace, and joy. I was a happy youth surrounded by family and friends. Continue reading “Be Connected and Grateful To God”
