Michael Suhany Insurance
Michael is committed to providing quality advice about the Affordable Care Act and how it affects individuals and families as they face the challenges of understanding and obtaining health insurance in this ever-changing environment. People need affordable health insurance that meets their needs and works as expected, and his promise is to do this to the best of his ability and training.
Michael became an insurance agent at the beginning of 2000, and Health Insurance quickly became his specialty. It was a time when one of the more popular insurance companies faced financial insolvency, causing serious upheaval and upset in the form of greatly increased premiums. He found a large number of individuals and families facing significant premium increases with no one to help them. It was a great opportunity to help people and to build a strong relationship with customers.
Knowing how the various insurance companies compensated agents, he saw that many people were being placed with companies because of the financial reward to the agents and not because of the best interests of their clients. This resulted in people who were locked in with their current insurer because of health conditions and had to accept well above-average premium increases. In Michael’s early years in the profession, he watched three insurers withdraw from the market leaving their customers with no option except a very expensive state high-risk pool. He recognized the great responsibility agents have to always do everything possible in the best interests of the client.
Part of his commitment to be truly helpful to those who come to him for their health insurance needs is to be as knowledgeable as possible about what people want in their healthcare, what they need in their health insurance, and to help them understand both, so their health insurance works the way they expect at the time of a claim. Michael Suhany holds the designations of Registered Health Underwriter, Registered Employee Benefits Consultant, and Chartered Healthcare Consultant from The American College in Bryn Mawr, PA. He fulfills regular continuing education requirements to maintain these designations.
