Welcome to my website!
I've enjoyed helping Oregonian's navigate the complicated health insurance landscape for over 15 years. This website was designed to help you understand the many insurance options available and to complement my personal advice when we talk.
In the tabs to the left, you will find detailed discussions of the various products I represent. Good information leads to a more informed decision.
NEW TAX BILL AND IT'S IMPLICATIONS
The 2018 Tax Bill passage will mainly impact individual health plans in one way: The person who chooses to not purchase an ACA qualified health insurance in 2019 will no longer be dinged a tax penalty. The tax penalty remains in force for 2018. If health insurance leaves you feeling 'priced out' there are alternative plans that are less expensive.
So why work with a Broker?
Although you can find all the insurance plan information on the internet, with the complexity, high cost, confusing provider networks, and tax issues to consider, it is helpful to have an experienced guide that can provide support when you need it. Health insurance is now something that needs to be reviewed yearly as things constantly change.
TV ads have spent millions to convince you that making a quick decision and easy web signup is all that matters. With health insurance, there is much more at stake. For most people, health insurance is your second largest monthly expenditure after housing. Getting expert help at no cost is to your benefit.
Today, there is no direct cost to purchase insurance through a broker, but we are only compensated if you list us as your agent when you apply. At some future date we may be forced to charge a fee for our service should insurance carriers remove our compensation (which they have in many states). This is not the case in Oregon at this time.

PS I help may clients by phone, combined with a screen-share appointment. This allows you to see my computer screen as we talk.
1. Call Dan at 503-650-4325 to set up a phone appointment. If possible, if you could be in front of a computer when we talk, we can do a 'screen share' so I can show you things as we talk. It's almost impossible to talk long about health insurance without visuals.
2. When we start our call, I'll direct you to http://www.join.me and give you a code to enter where it says "Join Meeting". This will allow you to see my computer monitor through your browser as we discuss insurance options.
3. If you prefer we can schedule an in-person appointment. I love to meet you face to face if you have the time.
