Brockton, MA (PRWEB) September 5, 2010
Chris Sheppard , CPCU, AFSB, PWCA, of Smith Buckley & Hunt Insurance Agency, (http://www.sbhins.com) announces the release of their service platform for nursing homes, assisted living and long term care facilities. The name of their service platform is Galaxy.
"I've spent a significant amount of time putting Galaxy together over the last year or so. Although the market is served by some well know agents and brokers, I felt that none of them offered any kind of comprehensive service platform," said Chris.
He went on to say, "the reason it took me so long to put Galaxy together is that there are so many moving parts, and I had to find best in class service offerings for each individual segment. Workers Compensation is a real issue for this industry, and from what I've seen and heard, no other broker has been able to provide any kind of meaningful help."
"I like to say that most facilities and brokers focus too much on the premiums and not enough on where the true savings are. Simple fact is that the premium only makes up 20% of your insurance dollars. I focus on the indirect cost, which make up 80%."
Galaxy is comprised of over 15 different service offerings; individually tailored to a facilities need. Particular focus is paid to workers compensation, and how to drive down costs over time. "Galaxy truly is unique in the industry and I'm looking forward to educating folks on how it really will help them control their insurance costs," said Chris.
