“The design of healthedeals.com provides a robust direct to consumer shopping experience for health insurance products. We extended our private exchange² to dedicated call centers where licensed advisors help navigate individuals and families to insurance product solutions. Today we are extremely excited to launch proprietary technology specifically private labeled for IPA Family advisors to help clients shop for Obamacare-compliant health insurance plans and supplemental insurance products,” said Brian Dow, Chief Operating Officer of IHC Specialty Benefits, the marketing and technology company behind healthedeals.com.

So whether the advisor is working with new customers or receiving referrals from existing clients, each advisor’s future is vast, wide and open.”
