What is the difference between an insurance broker, agent, and a consultant in Nashville?

Insurance brokers, agents, and consultants in Nashville all have a similar role as they help a business or individual select an insurance company and plan.

  • Agents represent one specific insurance company only for the most part, they sell that insurance company's products.
  • Brokers are often independent and are able to quote multiple insurance company's prices. They are usually paid through a commission from the insurance company selected.
  • Consultants are usually brokers as well, but they work with larger companies and are paid on a fee based arrangement, similar to general management consultants. That is why they are often called consultants.
You can use Mployer Advisor to find Nashville based insurance brokers and consultants.

Should I hire an independent Nashville insurance broker?

Finding the best insurance for your business can feel intimidating, as there are a lot of options in Nashville. For most organizations, it’s beneficial to hire an independent broker.

An insurance broker local to the Nashville area will have familiarity to the Nashville healthcare systems and insurance plans. This gives Nashville insurance brokers unique insight that others from out of the area may not have. Also, independent insurance brokers are able to quote you prices for your employees from a wider range of insurance carriers and therefore can often find prices and plans that better fit unique needs.
