Health insurance is now more complicated and involved than ever before. The Affordable Care Act has dramatically changed the landscape of health insurance in Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley. The professional staff at Glenwood Insurance can guide you through the process of obtaining health insurance that fits your needs, takes advantage of the Advanced Premium Tax Credits if you qualify, and provides you with peace of mind.
Our agents are certified with Connect for Health Colorado, allowing us to recommend the best plans in our area for the best price possible. If you don’t qualify for the tax credits available through Connect for Health, we have options outside the marketplace giving you more choices for your health insurance needs.
We provide consulting services to small and large group clients. We work with you to determine if your business group is best served by a policy through Connect for Health Colorado or a policy with one of the insurance companies we represent outside of Connect for Health. We will also explore partially self-insured plans that may make sense for your business as well.
In addition to health insurance, we will discuss other coverages your business may want to consider. For example: group life insurance, disability, and dental plans can add an additional layer of protection appreciated by your employees. Voluntary products complete a comprehensive benefit package, which can then be purchased by employees through payroll deductions.
