I am aware that people looking into buying their own health insurance often find the process somewhat stressful. On one hand there is the real need to feel protected and to have appropriate coverage for your particular situation. At the same time, there are often concerns with the time and energy it will take to research options, perhaps questions about how a pre-existing condition would be covered, and would a plan that meets your needs be within your budget. I have been an agent in Maine for the last 22 years and was the 2007 winner of our national company's prestigious Chairman's Award for Quality. If you would like to have an unpressured conversation with me about available health insurance strategies I would be happy to be a resource for you and see if I can help improve your situation.
