Time for an Insurance Checkup?


With the first of the year just around the corner, it is a good time to review your health insurance plan.  Many plans renew on January 1st, but even if you do not have a renewal, most deductibles start over for the calendar year.  If you would like a free consultation to review your current plan and see if it is still the best option for you, call Julie or Judy at Aspen Insurance.  As independent agents, we can compare several different insurance companies with many different plan options. 


All life changes, for example, getting married, buying a house, or having a baby, change your insurance needs.  We can review your life, health and disability insurance to make sure that your assets are covered and that your family would be taken care of.


We also have supplemental products available.  These are available for both groups and individuals.  This would include insurance covering such things as accident, vision, dental, hospital, cancer and life.  With so many clients moving to high deductible health plans, a supplemental insurance policy may help offset some of the costs you may incur. 


For the customer service you deserve and a complimentary evaluation of your insurance needs, call Julie or Judy at 257-4864.

Have you shopped for health insurance on the internet?  Do you think you are getting a better rate by doing this?  Think again.  With so many people now using internet services, and online shopping, many are getting insurance quotes through the internet.  What most people do not realize is that the cost is the same whether they shop on the internet or through our office.  When purchasing your health insurance through us, we will review all options available so that you make an informed decision.  Once you have purchased a policy through us, the service does not stop there.  If you have a premium, benefit or claim question we are here to help you resolve any problems and ensure that you understand your explanation of benefits.  This is in contrast to what would happen if you purchase a policy online and have a question.  Who are you going to call?  You can call the insurance company and go through the headache of voice menus or being put on hold for what seems an eternity.  You can transfer that headache to us and let us resolve those questions for you. 


Aspen Insurance is located at 1600 Highway 35 in Kalispell. Call 257-4864 to ask about scheduling a free consultation. You’ve got nothing to lose and quite a bit to gain.

Ever call your insurance agent or insurance company, only to find yourself in a maze of voice mail menus?  Or you leave a message and don’t receive a return call?  If this describes your frustration with insurance, try calling Aspen Insurance.  At Aspen Insurance we pride ourselves on customer service.  We see ourselves as a liaison between our clients and the insurance company.  We make every attempt to answer questions or resolve any problems with the insurance company for our clients. 


Ever have a large claim?  Have you received so many doctor/hospital bills and Explanation of Benefits (EOBs) that you are confused on who you actually owe money to?  A claims audit is just one of the services Aspen Insurance offers their clients.  We can sift through your EOBs, create a spreadsheet and spell out exactly how your claim was processed, make sure it was processed correctly and tell you to the penny who you owe money to.


Ever shopped for new health insurance?  Aspen Insurance will compare your options to your current plan.  We will point out differences in various health insurance plans and help you choose the plan that best fits your needs.  Aspen Insurance is an independent agency, so we have many options to choose from.


For an honest evaluation of your health insurance needs, call Julie or Judy at Aspen Insurance.
