The personal experience of the Hummel Group consultant motivates him to fight for the best insurance plan employers can offer | Business news
Mary Breitinger moved to the United States from Oxford, England 46 years ago. Like most people moving to another country, she has had to adapt well in terms of customs, culture, and government policies.
When she became the administrative director of Milark Industries, she had to become very familiar with employee insurance. The company funds over 99.8 percent of employee insurance, and Breitinger’s job is to make sure they have the right plan that’s right for everyone.
Milark Industries has worked with the Hummel Group for 16 years after deciding they wanted something new, affordable and more understandable.

“They have always given very good advice on the best plans available and the best rate available, and they monitor our group plan to see if we need to switch or return to another option,” said Breitinger.
Andy Yost, a benefit-risk advisor to the Hummel Group, became Breitinger’s main contact in 2020. Like the previous consultants she worked with at the Hummel Group, she was not left in the lurch. From clarifying issues with claims to physically visiting her office to help someone create a Medicare plan, he was there every step of the way.
Yost’s primary role is to assist business owners and provide them with advice and expertise in order to save them as much money as possible on their health insurance. At the same time, it offers your employees great benefits.
Yost Breitinger recently helped with insurance claim issues.
“It can create a lot of confusion because you have to call the freight forwarder or the insurance carrier, you have to pull out unnecessary documents,” said Yost. “It can be a painful process. So the Hummel Group tries to create clarity and to really take responsibility for the employees. ”
From a personal point of view, Yost understands these struggles employees go through, if not according to an employer’s best chosen plan. He worked in a manufacturing company for eight years, and three years ago he and his wife gave birth to their child with special needs.
Yost was immediately thrown into the healthcare world. He and his family saw several specialists, and while they were going through this they were also confused about what his labor insurance covered and what they had to pay out of pocket.
Based on this personal story, Yost can offer an employer not only in terms of knowledge and expertise, but also from the point of view of reliability, to know what his employees need.
Andy Yost is the benefit-risk advisor for the Hummel Group.
“I went this route and that is one of the reasons why I joined the Hummel Group,” said Yost. “Because, in my opinion, the broker you work with, or the insurance agency that an employer works with, is paid to not just help a management team make decisions, but to really be the mouthpiece for everyone in that organization.”
Breitinger assesses her overall experience across all borders. Instead of solving problems herself, all she has to do is call the Hummel Group and they will come to them and talk about it.
“Sometimes I still don’t fully understand insurance, but they’ll sit down with you, take the time and do a lot of research for you to make sure you’re getting the best plan at a good price, which is really important in a business” said Breitinger.
“They are just very professional, very friendly and very helpful. They go out of their way to ensure that you are a satisfied customer. “
