If you haven’t spoken with us about all the services, strategies and benefits available to you through the Wisconsin Medical Society’s insurance agency, reach out today. Even if your current health plan is in the middle of its cycle, we can still find savings for you and your employees (employees can even get deductible credits for health care dollars spent).

Let me give you a no obligation quote today – we can give you a preliminary rate within 2 days of receiving your census. You’ll see that we offer great rates, unique services and are the only agency that exclusively serves the health care community. Let’s schedule a time to talk.

Happy Spring!
