Where can I get a list of Health Insurance agents for certain counties
in California?

Request for Question Clarification by bitmaven-ga on 17 Aug 2002 11:15 PDT

Most health insurance agents list by cities, rather than counties, as
there are a lot of them.   If you had a few cities in mind, I could
supply you with a reasonable number of agents for those cities, or I
could give you the lists I've found so far (All organized by city).

Would that be acceptable?

Clarification of Question by henry123-ga on 17 Aug 2002 13:30 PDT
Yes that would be just fine, I can supply you with a list of the major
cities in the counties that I am interested in. I would be willing to
pay more for all the information that I need. I have a tremendous new
group health policy but it accesses the PHCS PPO network....and they
are not in all counties, hence my reluctance to send information to
places that cannot be served by providers. I just thought I would
clarify the situation.

     What if we do it this way:   I'll answer your original question,
re: agents in the given cities you've listed in your follow-up
clarification.   If you want more information on providers (by which
I'm guessing you mean doctors/hospitals) that fall under the PHCS PPO
network, I can provide that information provided you ask it as another
question.   I already have a website lined up for it, if necessary.  
I went ahead and asked my folks, who sell health insurance, for a few
pointers, and will provide a good starting point for agents in CA. 
I've limited it to 1-2 agents per city, based on expediency and cost. 
 I appreciate your patience and clarification thus far.   Now, on with
the show:

I was not able to find health insurance agents for these cities:  
Paso Robles, Porterville, Yolo, Paradise,  Vallejo,  Fairfield.  That
doesn't mean there aren't agents, just that I couldn't find them using
the means that I had at hand.

Here are the search terms I used: "California Insurance" "website"  
And I knew of a few websites offhand that would be instrumental:

Also, these companies in California and the West coast can assist you
if you call them in finding an agent in your area:

American Agents Alliance (626) 795-0519
Insurance Brokers and Agents of the West (800) 772-8998
Latin American Agents Association (626) 444-0999
Professional Insurance Agents Group (800) 553-4221

Let me know if you'd like me to pursue the PHCS request.   I'd be more
than happy to find you doctors or more agents for the same areas if
requested, but I'd ask that the rate be a little more, given the
numbers  of doctors and/or agents will necessarily be higher.

This was fun, and I hope this is helpful to you.   My folks were a bit
impressed that I was approached with a question in their field.  :-)


Request for Answer Clarification by henry123-ga on 17 Aug 2002 18:30 PDT
Actually I already know all the providers for PHCS because that was
the search I used to decide which counties I wanted agents in. My
company is preparing a mass mailing and we will want virtually ALL
agents in the cities. I really appreciate the links you provided as I
will probably be able to get what I want from there.

Lovly job.

 I'm guessing since your Request for Clarification was actually just a
statement that you don't need anymore information?  I'll go ahead and
answer so that the google-meter will shut off and stop telling me this
answer needs a clarification :-)
