Broker Academy Program
We Are Committed
Access Health CT has an opportunity to drive change in the diversification of the Broker community in the state of Connecticut, with the potential of reducing the disparity between historically underserved communities and those that are well served by the insurance broker community. The Broker Academy Program will create a pathway for new licensed insurance Brokers by recruiting from, and building the skillset of, those who live and work in underserved communities throughout Connecticut.
A licensed Broker will help consumers select a health insurance plan, build, and maintain customer relationships, execute sales, and complete administrative duties, such as document preparation, and follow-up with customers. Customer service is a crucial component of the Broker’s job. Brokers are responsible for ensuring and maintaining customer satisfaction. Demand for Insurance Brokers, for instance, is forecast to increase 9 percent through 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, while job growth for Insurance Brokers is expected to increase 4 percent during the same period.
The primary way an insurance broker earns income is by selling insurance policies to consumers and earning a commission from the insurance carrier. The commission is set by each insurance carrier individually and is pre-approved by the Connecticut Insurance Department. Insurance brokers earn new commissions by selling insurance policies to new consumers, and also are eligible for “renewal” commissions each year if the customers renew the policies the insurance broker originally sold to them. Average salary for a new broker in Hartford CT is $74,356 (Indeed.com).
