THE LHD STORYServicing the Industry
for More Than 21 Years

LHD is one of the top 5 independent insurance agencies in the state. Every day we discover new challenges and opportunities. We never settle and continuously seek out ways to improve our existing services and offerings. Each day we are better than the day before.

We are fiercely and passionately independent. We were founded, service clients, and continue to grow based on this principle/philosophy. Our independence allows us to put clients first, not stakeholders or private equity.

In 2001 we formed a benefits group, United Benefit Advisors (UBA), for independent insurance agencies across the country to help create leverage, buying power, and benchmarking without any of the red tape. Today, UBA serves more than 140 benefit firms.

Our next initiative was to establish better analytics and turn benefit plan data into actionable information. In 2013 we formed Vital Incite to proactively identify risk and opportunities, and then take action. Vital Incite has been adopted by independent agencies across the country.

In 2020, we will set the bar for trust and transparency and be among the first agencies in the country to achieve HITRUST certification, the highest level of privacy and security in our industry. Join LHD to be on the frontlines of innovation.

Please contact us to see how we can give your company the competitive advantage.
