The rising cost of healthcare has made it more and more difficult for employers to provide quality health care benefits at an affordable price. As a result, employers have been forced to reduce benefits or move to consumer-driven health plans that shift the cost to the employee. In some cases, increases in health insurance premiums have forced companies to cut their health benefits entirely. Now many individuals are forced to purchase their own health insurance policies.
The good news: purchasing your own insurance policy is much more attainable than you might think. For more than 40 years, we’ve helped countless individuals, families, and businesses get the health insurance that they need at a price they can afford. Additionally, we provide a variety of other insurances, including disability, life, and business; no matter what your situation is, we’ve got you covered.

Individual & Family Insurance
Can't bear the increased cost of your employee contribution at work? Have you lost your coverage entirely? It may be tempting to run the risk of being uninsured, but a single medical emergency could result in financial disaster.

Medicare & Medicaid Supplements
Original Medicare, which includes Part A Hospital Insurance and Part B Medical Insurance, pays for many — but not all — health-related services and medical supplies. However, you can purchase an insurance policy to cover “gaps” that are not paid for by Medicare, including costs like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
These can add up to a lot of out-of-pocket expenses, especially if you are hospitalized or need skilled nursing home services. Medicare Supplement Insurance is also commonly called Medigap, and meets minimum standards set by state and federal law. Prescriptions may be covered under the Supplemental policy you choose, or we can guide to purchasing a Prescription Insurance policy.
Annuities – Retirement & Saving
Looking to invest in your retirement? The time is right! We offer both fixed and indexed annuities, or annual sums paid to you. Indexed annuities are very popular in today's market, because they offer you the upside of market conditions and protect you against risk of loss of principal and interest. Some of these products offer bonuses of up to 20% of your original deposit, which can help you recuperate some of your market losses.
