The history of Triad Insurance Group is and remains today, anchored in family. In 1987, Triad was born out of a vision shared by co-founders Gordon and Karen Silverstein of a benefit firm that truly cares about increasing the value in our clients’ health and welfare benefits, thus ultimately helping to increase the overall security of our clients’ financial future. This mission remains of high importance, especially in the current market where premiums and deductibles are rising, and opportunities to save are shrinking.
Triad’s experience spans across multiple areas of expertise. Whether it is an employer, individual or Medicare recipient, we focus on our clients’ goals and not their size. We work with many different insurance companies to offer choices to our clients, and we specialize in creative outside-of-the-box solutions to fit our clients’ needs. For employers, we offer several cutting-edge and value-add resources to help them succeed.
Contact us today and experience the Triad difference. We are committed to keeping our clients informed and prepared by offering unbiased expertise and impeccable service.
