Large Group Is a Big Opportunity for Brokers – Made Easier by Your Word & Brown Large Group Sales Consultant


Large Group sales (groups of 101+ in California and 50+ in Nevada) can seem daunting. They represent additional work due to more people and increased paperwork to process, longer and larger enrollment meetings, and/or implementation of unfamiliar online enrollment technology.

However, Large Groups also represent more potential earnings for you – and you can write these groups with help from Word & Brown. We’ll work with you – from start to finish – helping you find, present, and close more Large Group cases.

Even if you’ve never written a Large Group in the past, we have the Large Group expertise you need.

If you’re a California broker, you’ll be glad to know we have Large Group contracts with four of California’s biggest insurers: Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California, Kaiser Permanente, and UnitedHealthcare. Our agreements with three of these California carriers allow us to help brokers write groups of 101 or more employees statewide. Our Kaiser Permanente agreement gives brokers in the Fresno and San Diego areas the opportunity to write 101+ groups through us. If you’re looking for coverage from another carrier, we have the resources and connections you need to put together a winning proposal.

If your focus is Nevada, you can count on our experience to help you there, too.

Beyond our great carrier relationships that benefit both you and your clients, Word & Brown offers other distinct Large Group advantages:

Simple RFP Process

Our streamlined RFP process includes an easy-to-use employee census that works for all of the carriers your clients are considering.

Our team will deliver a proposal that includes the best options for your Large Group client’s business and employees.

Custom Presentations

Enrollment Assistance

We’ll supply you with customized materials to boost participation and we’ll present alongside you or in your place (including bilingual enrollers in California).
No-Cost Additional Benefits

We offer a variety of no-cost services that you and your Large Group clients will appreciate, including free COBRA, POP, and ERISA services, in-house Compliance expertise, HR support, and 24/7 forms access (including a Large Group Quoting Guide and Health Plan Reference Guide).
Account Management
