See what Integrity does for insurance

Client First Insurance Solutions has partnered with the Integrity Insurance Group, LC, headquartered in Harrisonburg, Virginia, nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. 


This new contract is built on a long history of friendship and respect that Kirk enjoyed for many years in Virginia. The roots are deep and the trust is well-seasoned between the agencies. It began when Kirk befriended Twila and Larry Showalter and Curtis Steele, the founders of TLC Insurance. Larry and Twila were immersed in the Aflac Insurance employer programs and Curtis picked up the home, auto and business carriers. When the founder of Habitat for Humanity International, Millard Fuller, asked Kirk to move to Georgia in 2007 to help him launch a new international affordable housing ministry, the TLC Insurance team was the only choice to take over Kirk’s successful insurance business. Last year, TLC contracted with Integrity to become the go-to company for farm insurance.  


The tumultuous world of health insurance required Kirk to explore new opportunities with his property and casualty business. So it was a no-brainer to visit with TLC and Integrity to ramp up the Client First Insurance offerings. Kirk liked – no, loved – what he heard about Integrity Insurance’s programs, professionalism and goal to do well by doing good. 


So some of Client First’s documents will carry the Integrity brand and marketing information. It is a symbol of strength-through-numbers with a team that really cares about the wellbeing of each of their clients. Client First grows by the referrals of satisfied clients and therefore no matter what brand or logo is on the contracts, is working hard as a team to put its clients’ needs first. 


The team at Client First Insurance Solutions wants to earn your trust as the go-to place for all your insurance needs. To do this, more and more insurance carriers will be added to the already long list of options and you can be assured that the team is staying on top of all the financial, tax and legal risk management issues.




Integrity [in-teg-ri-tee] noun


  1. adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.


  1. the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished: to preserve the integrity of the empire.


  1. a sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition: the integrity of a ship’s hull.


Another way of thinking about the ethics of integrity is “to do the right thing when no one is watching.”

Citing uncertainty, Blue Cross seeks big rate increases in Georgia

In a blow to consumers insured on the state’s Obamacare exchange plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia has proposed to raise rates an average of 40.6 percent in 2018.

Blue Cross said that if policy in Washington weakens the exchange, it may even pull out of the Georgia Obamacare market.

The insurance company is the only one left that insures residents in every county in the state under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Three other insurance companies have signaled they will continue offering plans in parts of the state. But they, too, have proposed rate increases: averaging 12.4 percent for Ambetter, 18.6 percent percent for Alliant and 25 percent for Kaiser. Humana is staying in the small-group market, but it announced earlier this year that it would drop out of the individual market.Read more
