Our Unique Value
At BCI, we are broker agnostic, which means we can work with your current local broker with no interruption to your relationship. We can also work directly with the employer, resulting in additional savings. Because we are a general agent (not a broker), we do not require commissions or consulting fees. Our strategic carrier relationships amortize our fees across their entire books of business — without impacting the group pricing for the clients we represent.
Commitment & Guarantee from the President
Ryan Nuckols, President, and founder of BCI, will be the “Executive Sponsor” and personally oversee the performance of your account. He will make sure all tasks are handled with a white glove service approach, from implementation, account management, and claims submission. Ryan has worked extensively with numerous large associations and employer groups in developing innovative benefit solutions for over 25 years.
