Van Dyne Insurance

lquoteI have recently gotten to know Ed MacConnell through my LeTip group in Huntingdon Valley and as result, his company, Total Benefit Solutions, Inc. . Ed has shown me and my clients that their firm offers the highest level of integrity, knowledge and service available.

As a Property & Casulaty agent I am often asked to provide L-H-D products. I am confident when I refer my clients and associates to Ed for their Life, Health and Disability services that they will be treated with the same level of care I would offer them.  Ed provides a menu of options that suit the clients preferences giving them a chance to choose which best suits them.

Ed now handles my company's health plan; Total Benefit Solutions, Inc. is top notch!

David Fiebert Inc

lquoteWe have been working with (Total Benefit Solutions Inc.) since we decided to start our own company benefit plan. Ed and his team took the time to answer each question along the way, and advised us about the challenges even before they happened. The support provided to us was invaluable in many aspects of running our company, not just getting the benefits installed. In retrospect I cannot imagine how any small business could complete the process on their own without creating more problems for themselves. It could have been an enormous headache, but instead it was smooth from beginning to end. Thanks!

CBDI, Inc

lquoteEd is the most innovative and communication oriented broker that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has the most sophisticated software to service his client book of business, so that he doesn't miss a beat! Ed and I have worked together on many presentations and with various associations. He shares a true passion for helping clients small and large, which I do not find in many brokers. He is a dedicated member of the Board at the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce, not to mention his many public service roles in Rotary, etc...I admire his ability to find time to help so many people!

Chris Handley

lquoteI work with dozens of insurance brokers in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Personally, I have never met a health insurance broker who cares more about his clients. Ed is always looking for innovative ways to provide his clients the highest quality coverage, and at prices that are affordable. Ed is one of the few people that I would trust to provide my own family with insurance.

I’ve been working with Total Benefits Solutions for many years now. Every year they run the numbers for comparison of the prescription plans available to supplement my Medicare plan. She does a fantastic job, even recommending plans that don’t work with brokers (no commission to them). (they) found health care plans for me before I went on Medicare as well. Do yourself a favor. Call them. You will be glad you did!

I am so grateful for the amazing service!



 

I was completely lost when looking for new health insurance. I called several brokers, and none would take the time to explain everything to me. He took his time and explained everything to me and answered every question I asked, without sounding annoyed. I am so grateful for the amazing service! I highly recommend!  Franklin S
