  1. I hope that they do this in my old company. But then, it is not always the case. In some public instutitions, employees will hardly have the choice.

  2. I wouldn’t recommend a small business shopping on their own. Theres too many other considerations and regulations that need to be considered than just picking out a plan. Further an agent should be showing you all the options and all the carriers, and serve as an advocate and first line of defense between the carrier and issues that arise.
