About Us

Founded in 2002

Selected Benefits, Inc. serves the health insurance needs of Texans in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin. We’ve worked hard to simplify the health insurance process, making it fast and easy for you to find the plan that fits your unique needs and budget. While our company was originally started to help Texas Realtors obtain health insurance, we now offer our insurance plans to the general public. In addition to offering individual and family health insurance, health savings accounts, and medicare supplements, we provide plans for dental, vision, accidental injury, critical illness, life insurance, and both large employer group and small group health insurance.

In recent years, due to the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, we have expanded the focus of our health insurance agency to provide services geared toward both the large employer group health insurance market and also service the small business group health insurance market in Texas.
