OPINION — A recent article reported that Washington County School District employees will now have to choose between high deductible and traditional health insurance plans (“School district employees to pay for health insurance for the first time”, February 15).

Many Utahns face a similar choice. To make an informed decision, they should consider seeking advice from a health insurance agent or broker.

These agents and brokers have an average of ten years of experience in the industry, so they understand the nitty gritty details of plans. They’re committed to helping their clients understand them, too — in fact, three out of four brokers and agents spend “most” or “a lot” of their time explaining coverage to clients.

    Seems like every time I’ve had any dealings with someone who titles themselves as a “broker,” for anything, has just left me “broker” than I was before those dealings. Just sayin’….
