Affordable Care Act

Since the introduction of the Affordable Care Act often known as Obamacare there has been a lot of confusion. I can help you siphon through the confusion. Without a special election period that is triggered by a specific event, you must get or renew your plan during the annual open enrollment that runs 11/1-12/15 annually. Plans run on a calendar year from 1/1-12/31.  Plans are guaranteed issue and no preexisting limitations apply.

The plan premiums are priced by income, number of participants, carrier and where you live. You may qualify for a subsidy based off your income. A subsidy can help with your premium, cost sharing (Silver Plans) or both. The amount of insurance carriers will vary by County & State.


The "Get A Quote" link below will save you significant time over visiting Healthcare.gov.  You can see all the available carriers in your state and the premium you are likely to pay based off your income, in under a minute. One last common misconception, you can't get an ACA plan if you make too much money. This is absolutely not true, you simply will not get a premium tax subsidy.  Again, you need to get a plan during the Open Enrollment or you need a Special Election period and have creditable coverage elsewhere.

Short Term Health

Short term health insurance is a great option for people in very good health. Below is a sample of who it may help:


  1. You missed the Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment.
  2. Waiting for benefits to start at a new employer.
  3. Between jobs and need temporary coverage.
  4. Age 64 and you pay a lot of money for your insurance.
  5. On COBRA looking for a lower cost insurance option.
  6. You simply refuse to purchase an expensive Obamacare plan.


The Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans still make for the best option. However, if you simply refuse to purchase an ACA plan, this is absolutely better than nothing. If you would like a short term health quote, please use the "Get a Quote" button. 


In addition to National General link below, I do offer another well known carrier  You can use this link to see their rates.


Short term health plans DO NOT cover preexisting conditions, prescription medications or the essential health benefits of Obamacare (mostly preventive benefits and maternity).  


It’s important to read the limitations & exclusions before making your final decision with this product.  If you have another policy in place, do not cancel until your new policy is effective and make sure no changes to your health have occurred between application date and effective date.

Dental insurance plans for individuals and families play an important role in your overall health. Annual cleanings, x-rays and exams help eliminate other health related problems associated with poor oral hygiene. Individual and family plans are great for self employed or individuals not getting coverage through their employer.


When considering a dental insurance plan, the following scenarios could apply. The plan could be a HMO, PPO or a Fee Schedule (discount plan). You may click on any of the links below to get a no obligation quote.

They provide 2 simple plans with a $1000 or $2000 annual benefit. In addition, they provide coverage day 1 for all coverage levels (they may be at a reduced amount for 6-12 months).

Discount plans are available in all 50 states for individuals, families and groups. Discount plans are not insurance, but give you access to the network discounts from 10%-60%.  Remember, you must use in-network providers. One of the best features, no waiting periods or annual maximums. 


I consider discount plans to be the “Sam’s Club” or “Costco” of dental savings.  If you’re not in a hurry to get a plan, many great sales are offered throughout the year that I can inform you about.  If you need assistance with plan selection, a group plan, finding a dentist or when the next great sale happens, please give me a call.
