San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 06, 2012
Since 2003, InsuranceSpecialists.com has offered insurance shoppers the ability to read all about how insurance works, as well as to request no-obligation quotes on homeowners, life, health and auto insurance. In September, the site expanded its offerings with a new directory of local agents. Now it's expanding that directory by including agents who specialize in health insurance.
Why focus on health insurance? Site director Jon Davidson says, "It's easy to assume that we all get our health coverage from our jobs, but what if we're self employed? What if we're retired, or in school or work for a company too small to offer insurance as a benefit? Health insurance is a necessity for most adults, especially those with children."
For consumers, the addition of health insurance agents means that Insurance Specialists now offers two ways to find coverage. Option one is to use the free quote engine; option two is to use the agent directory to find someone in your area and contact them directly. As well, site users are able to submit the information for agents who are not yet included in the directory.
For agents, a listing in this directory is one more way to reach potential customers in need of health insurance coverage. Because the directory is sorted by state and city, agents can easily connect with local consumers.
Of course InsuranceSpecialists.com will continue to provide the same helpful information it has offered for the last eight years: articles explaining how different types of insurance works, advice on how customers can cut costs on their coverage, a blog that highlights insurance industry news, and, of course, the quote engine.
Davidson adds, "Since 2003, we've allowed customers to get an insurance quote at the click of a button, but they couldn't select the company. Now, they have the option to pick the agent first. We think this flexibility is crucial in an economy that is still slow."
Insurance agents and insurance shoppers alike can visit the InsuranceSpecialists.com website for more information. As well, agents interested in joining the directory can send email to info(at)insurancespecialists(dot)com for more information.
