It Really Does Matter
In the benefits world, some people may think that consultants and brokers are just two different names for the same thing. Nothing could be further from the truth. While both consultants and brokers can supply you with health, dental, vision, life and disability insurance, thatís where the similarities end ― especially here at FirstWest.
For starters, brokers are representatives of the insurance providers they sell. At FirstWest Benefit Solutions, we represent you. That means we help you get the total benefits solution you need, rather than a package that providers want us to push. In fact, in many cases we make no commissions at all, but operate on a consulting fee. With you as our client, our goal is to get you the appropriate solutions at competitive rates/prices.
We put it in writing
As professional consultants, we are so confident youíll be happy with our service, weíll provide you with a contract clearly stating the services and products we provide and what you can expect from your relationship with us. Whenís the last time a broker offered to put that in writing? We thought so.
Depth and breadth
The products and services we deliver go far beyond those a broker can offer. Meeting your insurance needs is just the beginning. From administration and HR services, to disease management and wellness solutions, weíve got you covered. Youíll be amazed at the complete benefit and HR solutions once reserved for Fortune 500 companies that can be yours.
The bottom line
And then thereís the price. Thatís always the catch, right? Wrong. At FirstWest Benefit Solutions, not only do we disclose all of our fees, we are able to take portions of our profits and return them to you in the form of benefits and services. Now thatís value. There are many factors that cause our clients stay with us long term. Some of the key reasons they list include our knowledge, experience, comprehensive solutions, professional service and great value. You see, we invest in our clients for the long haul. Itís more than what they expect, itís what they deserve.
Weíd love to show you the difference being a FirstWest client can make for your business. After all, isnít that what you deserve?
