Access to health (for) Everyone Everywhere

With one in ten people not having health insurance in the United States, I think it’s safe to say we have an access problem within the industry. But what does it mean to have real access to healthcare? It’s more than just being given a single option, take it or leave it. It’s more than being trapped for a year paying for coverage you don’t understand. 

Here at HealthEE by HBG, access means two things, education, and freedom. First, you should control your health and be free to choose how much coverage is right for you—space in selecting the range and longevity of the coverage. Only want benefits while you are between jobs, waiting to join your partner’s plan, or enduring a waiting period for a new job? Then, you can use HealthEE by HBG. More than just the power of choice, with our advisors on the Ask Evan team, you have access to guidance and education to understand better why you need what you need. We’ve taken something as guarded and confusing as healthcare and turned the conversation to ease and possibility. With Ask Evan in your corner, no question is too small. Your dedicated advisor will take you step by step through how the process works, yes, but also have a casual and honest conversation about your lifestyle and health needs. Once you understand what you need, you can enter our online marketplace and add your coverage to your cart. 

Having access is a power in itself. In our first year, HealthEE by HBG has provided this power to 125,000 members through association partnerships within real estate, logistics, teachers, healthcare, and a myriad of other industries. You can also wield the power of access by scheduling a call with our ask Evan team here or browsing the original online store that started it all here.

3 Common Life Insurance Myths

Did you know that only 31% of Americans say they are “very” or “extremely” knowledgeable regarding life insurance?* The insurance world can be overwhelming for many, but it doesn’t have to be. It is said that the truth can set you free, so today, we are freeing you by busting some of the most common myths surrounding life insurance. 

If you think, “I have group life through my work; I don’t need an individual policy.” I hate to rain on your parade, but this is a classic myth, group life often provides $20,000 or just a single year’s salary, which isn’t nearly enough to ensure your family has financial security when they need it most. On the other hand, an individual life insurance policy offers up to $2 million in coverage. In addition, policies start at just $9 a month, a bargain that will give your family a sense of stability knowing they are financially protected.

“I can always get life insurance later.” Another misinformed myth, as we get older, our health becomes increasingly more at risk leading to policies increasing in price. If you wait too long, your rate will be exceedingly higher than if you lock in a lower rate while you’re healthy.

“It’s too expensive,” You’re not alone in this train of thought; more than half of Americans overestimate the cost of life insurance by as much as three times a policy’s average rate*. However, individual life insurance is more affordable than you think.

Locking in your life insurance will save you and your family many headaches later down the line. So do your older self a favor and browse your options today, click here for a quote.
