Our Providers – Group Insurance

Preferred Providers

While we place business with many carriers, we have special relationships with several companies whom we prefer to work with. Our knowledge of their products, administration, staff and underwriting provide us the ability to give our clients a higher level of service with these carriers compared to some of our junior providers. This does not mean we only work with our preferred providers, we certainly work with other carriers listed below. The descriptions of each of our preferred providers are the opinions of HMR Employee Benefits Ltd.
