This is a re-broadcast of a special episode of The Attachment point.

In this episode  Tony Canas and Nick Lamparelli speak with Tony Steuer. Tony is a prodigious author and advocate in insurance topics, especially in the Life and Health fields. He came up with an Insurance Bill of Rights that the insurance ecosystem should adopt as standard ethics in their day to day business dealings. We also touched on current events, specifically the debate over the Cassidy-Graham health insurance bill in Congress.

  1. I’d add an item or modify one from Tony’s list to enable insurance purchasers to review the policy forms of insurers prior to purchase so that those who desire to can make a more informed decision. I’ve had AGENTS tell me they can’t get copies of policy forms.
