Quotations from the Media To find a broker in your area use the Find an Agent feature on the National Association of Health Underwriters site... The best broker for you is one that is familiar with your situation, knows about various plans, and is not just a shill for a couple of companies. - New York Times The National Association of Health Underwriters represents thousands of professional health insurance agents and brokers who provide consumer advocacy and health care insurance for hundreds of thousands. - FOXBusiness
Quoted in the Media We all have a stake in achieving meaningful reform that both preserves Americans' freedom to choose their doctors and lowers long-term health care costs. A public option will accomplish neither. - Boston Globe Congress has rightly set out to both expand insurance coverage and reduce health-care costs for all Americans. But without an effective and enforceable individual mandate that guarantees the participation of everyone, neither goal is attainable. - Wall Street Journal
