TESTIMONIALS

In the ever changing world of employee health insurance benefits, Summit Insurance Services always has our back and guides us through.

Jon Bradford

Controller, The Wort Hotel
We were changing insurance companies every year to fight rising costs. But, when we found Summit Insurance several years ago, we found our insurance 'home'. Summit insurance is servicing extraordinaire. Many thanks for presenting at today's Breakfast Club. This is a valuable and confusing topic and there were lots of great questions answered. The evaluations were very positive and many people asked to have regular updates on the ACA.

Bette Linsenmann

Benefits Coordinator, Alta Construction
We’ve been with Summit Insurance Services since year 2000 and have come to rely on their exceptional assistance and knowledge, especially with the recent changes to health insurance. They’re willingness to meet with our employees to help them understand their benefits is invaluable, as is their claims assistance.
