Research purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of buyers' skepticism such as skepticism about social responsibility, resilience to negative information, equity, and word of mouth advertising on buyers' price sensitivity. Research methodology: A Sample of 411 people using cluster sampling from real clients of Razi insurance of west of Mazandaran province was selected by questionnaire that was adopted of two surveys Skarmeas and Leonidou (2013) and Iran et al (2011) and hypotheses were tested by means of structural equation model. Research results: Skepticism to social responsibility would effect on the level of price sensitivity while the hygiene factors are not observed in the organization but as long as the organization is in compliance will have little effect.
