An insurance broker local to the San Luis Obispo area will have familiarity to the San Luis Obispo healthcare systems and insurance plans.

Will my insurance broker handle my insurance claims?

Insurance brokers in San Luis Obispo do not specifically handle claims, that is the role of your insurance carrier. Your insurance broker can help you navigate the claims process if needed, especially for large and or questionable claims.


Do all San Luis Obispo brokers have an M Score?

We work hard to ensure every M Score is accurate, helpful, and pushes the insurance brokerage industry to be open and transparent. It’s calculated using a brokerage's breadth and depth of experience across industries, employer sizes, and offerings. An industry-first, the M Score is available for most San Luis Obispo-based brokers and more are being added every day.


When is the best time to shop for a new insurance broker?

Making the right insurance choice saves money, helps retain the best employees, and can prevent unforeseen costs. An insurance broker is an invaluable asset so the best time to shop for a new San Luis Obispo-area insurance broker is earlier than you think.
