Let a health care expert help you to make the right choices

When was the last time you checked on your health insurance coverage? 

Were you shocked, once you did, to see that it was changing?

And, if you didn’t already know, the health care industry is changing.

No longer can a pre-existing condition bar anyone from receiving health care. The plans for coverage are being standardized, too.

With everything that’s come to the forefront with the Affordable Health Care Act, (Obamacare), getting an expert’s advice on how to navigate the webs of what coverage to choose and how, might be the best way to ensure you’re making the right choices for you, your family or your small business.

Should you sign up for a PPO, an HMO or join a health savings account?

These are all personal decisions that most people haven’t been fully educated on.

Gary Evenvold can help you make that decision. Gary has amassed more than 25 years’ experience as a licensed health insurance agent, and is also a Certified Covered California Agent.

He’s been a San Diego County resident since 1979, and with his extensive knowledge of the local health care providers, he’s able to connect people with the appropriate coverage on a personal level.

His goal, as the March 31, 2014 deadline approaches, is to help clear up the confusion on which doctors people can see and which health insurance plans would work best for their budget.

Either in person, or over the phone, Gary will go through each scenario personally with each person because everybody’s different, he said.

And for the health insurance customer, there’s no charge at all to consult with him.

As an agent, his compensation comes from the carriers.

“Only insurance agents can make recommendations,” Gary said. “A navigator or a counselor cannot make a recommendation. They can take your information and enroll you, but they can’t say a PPO is better, or an HMO is better for you and this is why.”

Take advantage of using a certified agent versus going it alone. Call Gary at (858) 442-2304 or email him at [email protected].
