The City of Panama City Beach is requesting Statements of Qualifications from professional insurance agents who have significant experience in the public entity insurance market. The City will be reviewing these qualifications and selecting a licensed qualified Agent to provide specified services related to selection and placement of employee health and welfare benefits, including but not limited to, employee health, dental, vision, short and long term disability, and life insurance coverage.
The City prefers to place health and welfare benefits insurance coverage through one Agent and to establish a close working relationship with that Agent. Our intent is to obtain not only reasonable premiums, but also stable and financially sound insurers, as well as the most responsible and competent Agent to service our account.
The Agent selected will need to be available to advise, instruct and educate the City on all insurance matters related to health and ancillary policies for our employees. The selected Agent will work with the Insurance Specialist and other City staff on a daily basis to assure that the most effective and efficient health insurance program is operating on behalf of the City of Panama City Beach.
The proposal shall include the entire response to this Request for Qualifications document and any amendments which may subsequently be issued.
Proposals received after the above stated time will be considered a late quote and will not be opened or considered.
Please direct questions regarding the proposal package to Lori Philput, Risk Manager, at 850-233-5100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
