It’s not an exaggeration to say that there are an abundance of ways to go about getting health insurance quotes in Colorado. We’re going to talk about a few ways to do it and what some of the pro’s and cons are of each method but first I will list them. To name a few, you can call a broker, input your name into a website to called back, scour each carriers website, or go to a brokers website and use their online rating engine. Like I said each has it’s advantages and disadvantages and I will expound on those below.
Call a Broker
Of course, I am a little biased but I believe this is your best bet for health insurance quotes in Colorado. Utilizing a health insurance professional can get you many things with one phone call. You can receive rates from some, if not all, of the top carriers in your state. You can get a mini-education on the nuances of health insurance policies in Colorado and you can ask all the questions you have about the health insurance business. There isn’t much of a down side unless you happen to find a broker you don’t mesh well with or one who may not be totally knowledgeable. Those are few and far between anymore. This is a tough business and the bad ones get weeded out pretty quickly.
Input your name into a website
This method can get a bit dicey and often ends up in the consumer being frustrated. Searching for health insurance quotes in Colorado using this method will often get you a superfluous amount of phone calls because some companies sell that information to as many as twenty insurance agents, all vying for your business. Many times they will sell your information again a few months later. Now, one upside to this method is you will have the opportunity to vet many agents in a short amount of time. You will, however, get the same number from most of them as health insurance prices are standardized and can only be different by selecting more or less options.
Scour each carriers website
This method is my least favorite. It is difficult to self educate yourself with all the different companies doing business in your state. Getting health insurance quotes in Colorado by this method will ensure you have plenty of reading material and a handful of quotes from each carrier so you can go through the many options you may or may not want on your policy. The other problem with this method is when you do purchase you are left with an 800 number service center rather than one point of contact who knows you and your needs if an issue arises. Going directly to the carrier won’t save you any money either as policy premiums are set in stone no matter the route by which you by the policy.
