E A Becker & Associates really know group health insurance and Affordable Care Act details inside and out. If you have found this agency consider yourself very lucky! I have been working with Becky for over 5 years, and her ability to make this complicated health insurance maize very easy to navigate is fully due to her attention to detail and comprehensive knowledge. She has an uncanny ability to focus in on your specific employee landscape and render the best options in short order. All the other great reviews you read are all true.

Group health insurance is ever changing, but E A Becker & Associates always find a way to make sense of it for my organization. Every year at renewal, our agent reviews our company and employee needs/wants for the next twelve months and adjusts our plans accordingly. Our agent does not give up until all options are researched to find out the best fit for our company and employees. Their follow up is immediate, and their plan comparisons give us a choice and are thorough, so we understand what we are getting. I truly do not know what we would have done without their guidance and assistance these past 2 years.

I had contacted several group insurance brokers and it took many days and several attempts on my part to reach them. The agents at E A Becker were quick to respond, did everything they said they would do, answered all of our questions, and were very friendly! We have received excellent advice, completed ACA reporting and prompt assistance with our benefit needs for over ten years!
