Opinions on IHC GROUP Indemnity Plans Re: Opinions on IHC GROUP Indemnity Plans
It's a limited fixed indemnity guaranteed issue plan that covers nothing ore existing for 12 months. It is what it is. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Their wrap around accident and CI is a great product as well.

Who in the world is offering you a 12 month advance? The carrier does not advance. I assume you have to assign commissions and get paid from a GA to get the advance.

Advancing 12 months on any limited product is just crazy.

You should go as earned and take a higher contract. PM me if you want more information.

Hadn't got that far in the contracting but after checking it out today they do ask to assign commissions. They have over 1000 agents nationwide and would be surprised if they would ever burn that bridge but one never knows and I wouldn't assign commissions anyway.

TxInsurance let me know what you offer - might be interested. Was already thinking would go direct to see what contract they will offer. As earned is fine anyway.

Opinions on IHC GROUP Indemnity Plans Re: Opinions on IHC GROUP Indemnity Plans
I'm running into IHC and I need some guidance.

I worked in the call center doing a program very similar to AHCP and I did very well. I outgrew the flat fee pay, and went independent. I am torn between HCO and a local AHCP startup ran by an old vet from whom I could learn a lot from about employee benefits packages. He came highly recommended, however it appears he worked for Insphere as a DM and it looks like through him I'm contracted with AHCP, IHC, and IPA.

It seems like the things I've read about the latter two orgs get better the more recent the posts/reviews, so are these legit companies with a legitimate purpose for certain clients or are they a sham?

Also, what would you guys do with these choices?
