Because I offer plans from more than one carrier I am required to present this disclaimer:
We do not offer every plan available in your area. Currently we represent 7 organizations which offer 104 products in your area (state of WA). Please contact Medicare.gov, 1-800-MEDICARE, or your local State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) to get information on all of your options.
Who am I?
Microsoft moved me to WA State in 1988 after I worked for various software companies in MN. After Microsoft, I started traveling the world flyfishing in my late 30’s. I’ve had many adventures in remote jungles, islands and rivers in around 40 countries. In effect, I did a reverse retirement! After a health incident that ended my retirement, I now help people navigate the often-confusing health coverage in WA State. I’ve been the president of the Tumwater Business Networking International (BNI) group and a member of the local networking group “BRING!”
What do I charge for my services?
You pay me nothing. If you enroll in a plan through me, I become the Agent/Broker of Record. This is the person who receives commissions from the carrier for your health plan. In return, I support you when you have questions year-round, inform you of yearly changes and help you if you want to change plans.
What is an independent broker?
Being independent means that I am free to discuss plans from multiple Insurance companies and help find the plan that best fits your needs, no matter the carrier. I currently work with 9 healthcare plan providers!
What do I do?
I help people identify their health care options and choose the plan that fits them best. I do help people with the WAHealthplanfinder, but primarily help people with Medicare options. I educate, answer questions, and support you throughout the process. I also assist with the enrollment and become your Agent/Broker of Record.
Where can we meet?
I can meet you at your home or business, at a convenient coffee shop or nearby library if you are in the Olympia/Lacey/Tumwater area.
Elsewhere, I can help you on Zoom or the phone. I am licensed to sell in the states of Washington and Arizona.

Jay Paulson Reviews
He was extremely helpful and made himself available in person and via email or telephone. I'd recommend Jay to anyone in need of help trying to figure out Medicare and the various supplemental insurance coverage's.
Jay is my medical insurance broker. Jay was honest and straight forward about my options and even looked at my previous plan to compare. He has been available for questions and concerns. I would strongly recommend Jay as a broker for health insurance. In fact, I have recommended Jay to others. Jay has the ability to explain complicated matters in very clear and concise language, without making you feel uninformed. Jay is down to earth with a sense of humor that makes me feel comfortable. I am thankful I found Jay to help me with these choices.
Jay is my favorite agent!
