Finding the best coverage for your family.

You now have choices. Maybe too many. The doctor networks have changed. The enrollment rules and tax guidelines have changed. You can purchase coverage through the Covered California exchange in order to get a tax credit or you can buy directly from the medical carriers. As your agent, I'll help you determine the best route. Most insurance companies recognize that it can be overwhelming, which is why they pay insurance agents a small commission to assist customers with making the best choice for their family. Working with an agent doesn't cost you a thing. And it might save you quite a bit of time, frustration and money.
