When you select Smart Choices Health, you get far more than just another broker or consultant. We will be your partner and advocate throughout the plan year. All your employees will have access to a Smart Choices Health Benefits Advisor to answer their questions or concerns regarding their health plans and how best to use healthcare.  


We are not your typical broker or insurance agency. Our approach to finding the right health plan is unique. Benefits can be complicated, and one size does not fit all.

Our goal is to craft the perfect benefits portfolio for your employees that ensures they see the value in what you are offering to them. We strive to ensure employees understand the healthcare options so they can make positive changes in their lives to be happier and healthier in the workplace.

Your business is more productive and profitable when employees are not stressed over healthcare. Our advocacy services ensure employees have resources to get answers to their questions when they need them.

Our mission is to become a strategic partner working with our clients where we can make a difference through providing healthcare solutions not just quotes. Our vision is to put a priority on health and wellbeing where our clients become employers of choice.

Making the numbers work for your bottom line is just one of our claims to fame. The other is having employees say “Thank You” to you, for providing great benefits!
