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.
