Tracy Matson of The Matson Agency works hard to get better at his job every day. That adds up to a lot of learning for the Little Rock native, who specializes in health insurance and has been in the business for 25 years. “I believe that in this industry, one develops skills and abilities and constantly learns a lot,” he said. “This is very important for me and motivates me in my work.” A graduate of Arkansas State University, he has a daughter, Emily, who is 12 and attends Pulaski Academy.

Is it better to have a high insurance premium and low deductible or vice versa? It all depends on the individual client. I try to assist people in making these decisions and getting them in the plan that best fits their need.

What makes your customer service outstanding? We have had most of our clients for years. They are almost all friends, and we treat them as we would want to be treated. They see a lot of us and we enjoy getting out and meeting with them.

What are the most important factors to consider when choosing an insurance company? Check a company’s ratings. Look into complaints against the company.
