Our medical practice had a large well known insurance broker for years. We always assumed we were receiving the best service. Total Benefit Solutions Inc.  came in and left no stone unturned in their evaluation. The savings they provided was equal to 50% of what we were previously paying. In addition we wound up with better medical and dental plans and an overall enhanced benefit program. We couldn't be more thrilled with the services, Thanks Ed! .
