Employee Benefits Broker Warns of Insurance Company Mistakes

Share Article

Bob McNett, president of the McNett Agency, discusses how important it is to have a liaison with insurance companies.

Health insurance companies have been coming under closer scrutiny for seemingly arbitrarily canceling the insurance plans of people who apply online.

According to a story in the Orange County Register, insurance companies have rescinded the insurance plans of some clients for failing to report "a preexisting back condition" or "a heavy menstrual period." Because of cases like these, insurers are facing more serious examinations from state health regulators in California.

"It is really, really unfortunate that you have to be so careful with health insurance companies," said Bob McNett, president of the McNett Agency (http://grouphealthinsurancetulsa.com), an employee benefits broker in Tulsa. "Though closer scrutiny is a step in the right direction, it will take some time for major changes to happen in the health insurance industry. Right now it is absolutely vital to have somebody to interface with the insurance company for you."

Many problems can arise from insurance, especially employee benefits. Premiums can be overpaid, billing mistakes can add up, and claims may not be processed accurately. The McNett Agency has helped many of its clients overcome these major insurance issues.

"We have one client with several hundred employees who was being serviced by another broker," McNett said. "Everything was a mess. We worked with the client and the insurance company initially to get the monthly billing statement fully updated. We had to go back and add employees who had been missed and take off employees that had been terminated. We also had to get the client credited for premiums that had been overpaid."

Nicole Mark, the vice president of human resources for that particular client, said that the McNett Agency made her job much easier.

"I have been in human resources for 10 years, and The McNett Agency provides the best support of any organization I've worked with," said Mark.
