On June 22, 2004, the State of Ohio issued to Ohio Health Benefits LLC our original certificate to begin operations as an independent broker. We began as two agents, Steve Clark and Dave Auble, and two part-time assistants, with offices in Tallmadge and Hiram.
Since that time, we have expanded and moved office space at least six times, added 12 new licensed agents and at least ten new full and part-time office associates, along with a bookkeeper. Our infrastructure has been built all in the interest of serving our clients with exceptional customer service and providing products from the best companies available. We continue to have offerings from over a dozen different health insurance and Medicare carriers.
Over the past 15 years, we have experienced tremendous growth and success thanks to you our valued and trusted clients! Most of our growth continues to come from referrals from our current clients as well as the many financial, accounting and other professionals who trust us with their valued customers. Our thanks go out to you for allowing us to continue to assist you in your health insurance needs.
At the beginning of 2019, original partner Dave Auble decided to step out of health insurance into retirement. Although all of us will greatly miss Dave, we will continue to offer the same level of service excellence our Hiram clients have become accustomed to. We have agents available to help through this transition.
We look forward to many more years of success and continued growth. As always, please do not hesitate to call us anytime with questions or concerns. We want to make sure you are satisfied with your current policy and that your health insurance needs are being met.
And of course, We Love Referrals!
