The average person or business owner may have a false sense of security regarding insurance coverage based on the ease of obtaining price quotes and coverage options from the internet. According to a 2010 Bureau of Labor Statistics report, there is an increase in obtaining quotes and purchasing policies on-line giving the client a more active role in selecting their policy. This type of purchase quite often may be a result of lower premium marketing efforts and may not ensure sufficient coverage. Because of the overwhelming volume of information available through the internet, the role of the insurance agent is changing.
The primary marketing message in the industry is on lower premiums. This message has significant appeal but the question remains if the selected policy provides sufficient coverage to protect the insured from a loss. As this trend unfolds the role of the agent becomes more important if the insured truly want to understand the details of their coverage. The insured should be able to turn to their insurance agent to help clarify the risk.
Ozinsurance is launching a consumer insurance advocacy program offering website documents, on-line webinars and on-site seminars to educate individuals and business owners on how to evaluate their current needs and coverage. “We want our clients to understand exactly what type of protection their premium buys them. There are many misconceptions in this industry and we believe it is our responsibility to take the mystery out of insurance coverage”, said Manager of Ozinsurance, Paul Oziem.
