New Platform to Serve as ‘Virtual Power Tools’ Connecting Local Agents to More Consumers, Simplifying Health Insurance Options and Assisting in Enrollment

Frankly, navigating health insurance options is confusing and impersonal for most people and that’s why we created our Agent Finder, to easily identify an agent with expertise in these products.

The IHC Group released today the proprietary Agent Connectivity Tools (ACT) technology available through, its award-winning private health insurance exchange.

The new ACT platform combines three key components that enable health insurance advisors to be more productive. Contracted agents who sign up for the complimentary new technology platform: 1) gain visibility on the Agent Finder search database on Health eDeals website, 2) receive a professional, customized homepage and 3) are provided access to IHC’s Customer Service Center, which allows agents to conveniently update client information online.    

“IHC continues to innovate with cutting-edge technology that enables agents to work smarter. The Health eDeals personal site is a great tool for not only lead generation, but it also allows customers to shop and apply on their own if they wish,” said Brad Frazier, National Business Development Leader for IPA-Family. “The new ACT tools will be invaluable during the very busy Open Enrollment period and beyond. I am especially excited by the Agent Finder and Customer Service Center tools.”

Health eDeals, a member of The IHC Group, provides consumers access to top-rated, affordable health insurance products and services designed to help bridge the gap created by Obamacare plans. Whether working with local agents or on their own, helpful information, tools and technology are available 24/7 to assist consumers in making the best choice for their budget and needs.

“Health eDeals has become the health insurance destination for thousands of unique visitors,” said Brian Dow, Chief Operating Officer of IHC Specialty Benefits. “And we know consumers like to shop local and connect with experts who know and understand their area. Frankly, navigating health insurance options is confusing and impersonal for most people and that’s why we created our Agent Finder, which is one of the components of ACT, to easily identify an agent with expertise in these products. Our network of expert advisors is available where you are, ready to answer questions, offer helpful solutions that work within the family budget, and make sure shoppers understand the plans and process of buying health insurance.”

The IHC Group, a leader for over 25 years in administering and underwriting innovative and affordable ancillary products, offers a diverse portfolio of health products in addition to Obamacare plans on Health eDeals:

  • Short term medical
  • Critical Illness
  • Supplemental gap insurance
  • Dental
  • Telemedicine
