FYI, in Georgia, agents can not charge a cash fee or convenience fee for client’s payments made in the office. It is against Ga. law. Agents are only allowed to collect the amount on the client’s bill from the insurance carrier. The only additional fee that can be charged is a credit card fee if it is charged by the carrier.
Agent’s that charge a 1-2 dollar fee for using cash are doing it illegally. We’ve had several clients ask during the quote process how much our cash fees are. And they are surprised when we say agents can NOT charge extra fees like that. It’s Against the law.
SO keep that in mind, the insurance carrier bill amount + credit card fee is absolutely all the agent can charge you when paying in his/her office.
