Say hello, to Jessica Straw, a seasoned health insurance sales advisor, “I enjoy helping people. I enjoy being a problem solver, and helping them make the right choices.”
Jessica Straw sits down with the entertainingly probing Clem Harrod to discuss the advantages of hiring an advisor. Straw explains her process, as identifying any unique situations such as children, existing health conditions, and frequency of visits; then, locating the appropriate plan that’s most suitable for your location, your finances and your health future.
“You never know when the unexpected can happen”, Jessica states. She prefers finding insurance plans with premiums in the middle ground – “It is a safer bet, based on fluctuation of income and in case of an unexpected accident.”The time spent with Straw, you will learn about medical bankruptcy, pitfalls of no insurance and that a nationwide Preferred Provider Organization, or PPO, is a traveling independent contractor’s best choice.
