Health insurance can be confusing. Even as medical professionals, insurance is often not taught as part of your training so navigating the various plans and options can be overwhelming. It's too easy to get stuck with an insurance plan that is not only unnecessarily expensive but doesn't give you the coverage you need. As a Licensed Insurance Advisor I have access to all the plans available and can shop around for you! I'm very transparent so if we get on an appointment, we'll do a screen-share so you can see exactly what your options are and we can pick and choose and customize plans for your needs without breaking the bank. So please feel free to schedule time or email with any questions

Location Requirements: Eligible in all States except CA, ID, WA, OR, AZ, NM, ND, MN, PA, NY, VT, NH, MA, ME, RI, CT, NJ, DC
