I work with all of the major health insurance companies in Oklahoma including Blue Cross, Delta Dental, Aetna, United Health Care, Assurant, and Community Care.
In 2010, I decided I did not want anything to do with the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare.
I sold my agency and started Insure It Forward. But that is a story all it’s own. You may read it HERE.
In 2013, I saw what a mess the Affordable Care Act was and how many people needed help. Even with 20+ years of experience in the health insurance industry, it took me awhile to figure out the Market Place and how it worked.
I was not a fan of many of the parts of the ACA, but I really did enjoy being able to get coverage for people who had pre-existing health conditions. It was the first time in 20 years I was able to get coverage for clients whose only option until then had been group health insurance through their employer.
I remember a call from a mother whose daughter had just lost coverage on the high risk pool. I was able to get her covered even though her daughter was in the hospital. That was a good day. I didn’t even mind the 20 plus hours it took me to get her enrolled! Yes, over 20 hours because the government’s system was so messed up.
That first year was interesting but we were able to help people who didn’t have any options before then.
The Ghana Project
6,500 people die every day - 5,000 of them children - because they don't have clean drinking water!
We have a goal to donate $10,000 to our charity partners, Water4 and WaterisLife, for a joint project providing 10 pumps and a well kit for villages in Northern Ghana.
We are proud to say that as of November 1, 2013, we have donated $2500 toward that goal!
