Thank you for seeking my expertise to help you navigate health insurance options for 2016 and beyond.  I work hard to make this site user friendly and packed with helpful and updated information. Working with a Broker comes at no cost to you as I am compensated by the companies when you appoint me as your agent.  


    Since the passing of the Affordable Care Act, health insurance in Oregon has increased dramatically in complexity.  There are now available large tax credits to some, tax penalties for others, a Federal Marketplace offering over 80 plans, narrowing provider networks, and dozen's of non-standard plans to evaluate. Some companies are dropping out and others are looking at large rate increases for 2017.

     Insurance rates are fixed by law so shopping around will always yields the same quotes.  The difference at my agency is my experience, personal service, and ability to help you make wise and informed decisions.  You will always work with me personally, never a call center or an associate.      

Open Enrollment For 2017
is just around the corner!


      This years Open Enrollment Period for Medicare Advantage runs from October 15, 2016 to December 7, 2016.  My current clients can expect to hear from me early in October regarding how your plan is changing for 2017.

PS  An efficient way to help you is through a phone appointment with computer Screen-Sharing.       Here's how it works:
1. Give me a call, or let's schedule a phone appointment: Be in front of a computer screen. 

2. I'll direct you to .  I'll have you go to the box 'Join A Meeting', then I'll give you a code to enter.  This will allow you to see my computer screen as we discuss insurance so I can visually show you what we are discussing.
 I can do a Marketplace application for you in this way, help you make changes when needed, show you how to look up providers, etc.  It's really helpful tool!  I also do in-person appointments.
