"I’m pleased to recommend Desert Insurance Benefits, Inc. at 1006 W Ivy St, Moses Lake, Washington.  Over the last thirty years I’ve known the president of Desert Insurance, Lindy Russell, and worked directly with him as he filled the medical, dental, life, disability, long term care and other insurance needs of two difference businesses I worked for. The company keeps us apprised of the latest changes and laws enacted by the State and Congress.  They help us wade through the pending and mandated changes and provide us with material to understand it.  Desert Insurance also provides meetings for employees anytime we request it to educate the new employees and be on site to answer any questions or concerns. Desert Insurance has access to all major insurance networks and many of the specialty coverages.  The choices they provide enable us to make the best decisions for employee coverage. The level of service extended to our company and employees has exceeded our expectations.  The time, service and caring attitudes are exceptional.  They will go the extra mile for us as an employer, and for each employee to resolve any claim issues.  We have been very pleased with the work they’ve done for us. We trust Desert Insurance with our health insurance/benefit needs.  Without hesitation I would recommend Desert Insurance Benefits, Inc. as a company with which to do business. Feel free to contact me if you have any specific questions."

-Debra J. Hellewell
Controller for Western Polymer Corporation
"Our corporation has used Lindy's services for several years and we don't even consider other firms because of the service his firm has provided. He has consistently looked for the best values for us in our Health Care policies for our employees. Our firm has locations in two states and Lindy has always been able to accomodate that troublesome issue. If we have change requirements or questions his office has always been very responsive and we don't have to deal with an electronic answering service--we talk to real people. I highly recommend this firm."

"Desert Insurance Benefits has served Kooy's Irrigation by providing group medical insurance since 1984. During that time, as insurance premiums increased, Desert Insurance helped us choose alternate plans that would keep those increases to a minimum. Recently, Desert Insurance helped us set up an HSA system for our company. Their integrity and honesty could always be counted on and they were willing to come to our business location whenever we had questions.

Our business is irrigatin and we often don't have time to pay attention to other details. Desert Insurance paid attention to those details for us regarding insurance, and encouraged us to make improvements that we otherwise would not have done on our own.

The decision to let Desert Insurance handle our medical insurance in 1984 was a good one. We would not change that decision today."

-Elliot Kooy
President, Kooy's Irrigation, Inc.

"For over 20 years Lindy has assisted our family and employees with our insurance needs.  He continues to provide prudent, helpful advise whenever needs arise.  Lindy and his team remain informed with regard to the ever-changing insurance laws and regulations; they inturn pass this information on to us.  Lindy has been especially sensitive working with our employees and their families, including complicated and long-term medical care.  We consider Desert Insurance Benefits a trustworthy partner."

-Jerry Allred
Owner Mt. View Acres, Inc.
"I have worked at my job for 34 years. During that time, I have worked with a lot of different insurance brokers. In my previous experience, a broker brought you the new insurance plans when renewal time came around and helped with issues that we couldn’t resolve with the insurance companies. Other than that, I never heard from them. We recently merged with another company that used Lindy and his team at Desert Insurance. We decided to stay with Lindy because it sounded like he was more “hands on” than the broker we were currently using. Lindy handles all the enrollments and keeps me updated on them. He has taken the work load off me and has saved me a lot of time. He emails me whenever there is a change I need to be aware of. I am extremely happy with his services and have no intention of changing. I would highly recommend Desert Insurance."

Office Manager, Ag Link Incorporated

"We are a new customer of Desert Insurance.  However, Lindy has been coming by our office the past three years with proposals.  He was always so friendly, helpful and informative that we had hoped that he would come up with something to beat the insurance we had at the time.  Finally, after a large increase for 2010 from our past carrier, Lindy beat their price with insurance that is even somewhat better; and, we made the switch.  He and Brooks were extremely helpful with the enrollment process and continue to be very helpful and prompt when answering any issues or questions that have come up.  I highly recommend them – their customer service is outstanding."

"Desert Insurance Benefits is instrumental to Friehe Farms employee benefits package which includes health insurance and an IRA retirement program. Lindy understands how the insurance and investment industries operate and is easily accessible by phone or email to explain rates and benefit information to us and to keep us current on legislative activity. He has been our agent for over 25 years. Lindy comes out to our Farm at least once a year to meet with employees, fill out
enrollment paperwork and answer questions. An employee with a major medical procedure or a significant monthly prescription cost can call Lindy directly and get immediate advice about how to minimize out-of-pocket costs.Desert Insurance Benefits is proactive in providing a custom product to us at the most competitive price. Lindy helped us implement an HSA program in 2005 which has kept our premiums affordable. Lindy recommended a vision insurance package this year which will give our employees and their families a significant benefit for a relatively low cost.Desert Insurance Benefits is a valuable advocate for our farm for employee
benefits and we highly recommend the company."

"SVZ uses Desert Insurance for our insurance needs, including medical, dental, vision, Group Life & Add and Voluntary Life.  They have been very professional in their dealing with SVZ.  Desert has been able to source our same coverage or better at a minimum cost increase or even a reduction in premiums,  which is very significant in these years of rapid cost increases for medical insurance.   When SVZ moved to a different provider they took care of employee meetings to cover the changes and the change was very efficient and on time so there was no lapse in employee coverage. 

SZV highly recommends Desert for any of your insurance requirements."
