Tamara was very helpful, however, I failed to as about chiropractic when comparing the two plans. When I called back, she had gone for the day, so I asked to speak to someone else, and 3 time, THREE times I was transferred to her extension even after telling the person answering the phone that she was gone. I found that quite irritating!

I was completely impressed with her knowledge and helpfulness for a subject that is ridiculously complicated. She made it simple and I'm positive I have the best plan for me. I have already sent two other people to her and I plan to send more. She could not have done a better job. I was dreading this experience. She made is a painless as possible. She is also kind and courteous. I don't think you have a better employee than her. She is what one should expect every time.

Tamera was a great help to me. Trying to figure all this out on my own was so stressful, but with Tamera's help I understand what I am getting. She was wonderful!

The representsative (Tamara) could not have been more helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable. When I had my own insurance agency (lifeand health products) I would have been ecstatic to have her on our staff.

Your Representative was a absolute blessing to me, gave me all the information I was looking for and Thanks to her I now have a plan that I feel very good about , and can rest easier in my mind, knowing I have things that can help me when I need them. Also she was a joy to speak with , unlike other phone conversations from places I have experienced in the past.

The only thing I didn't like is that there is a lot of wasted time repeating the same thing, which I assume is on the script. That should be fixed.
