Small But Mighty

At PA Health Advocates we have a hire to retire mentality for our employees. We feel this provides our team members security and our clients a consistent face and a real person to work with regularly. Because of this, much of our internal processes are regularly stress tested for efficiency to ensure time is spent in the right places to serve you.

Outside of our internal roles, we partner with various agencies, like URL Insurance and Emerson Reid, to facilitate quoting, enrollment, compliance research, and servicing tasks year-round for our client base. This allows your point of contact to remain stable while getting the right answers promptly and accurately with our deeper team of administrators behind the scenes.

We are small, but mighty.
