Judy is an independent insurance agent in Woodbury who has helped many people navigate MNsure, leading them in the right direction to find a plan.
"I feel I have provided a valuable service as a MNsure-certified agent," said Judy. "It's not about the money for me, it is about getting people quality health care at an affordable price."
Many of Judy's clients were previously denied health insurance coverage due to pre-existing conditions, and were enrolled in the Minnesota Comprehensive Health Plan (MCHA) paying very high premiums. Judy was able to help these people pick a plan through MNsure at much lower premiums and better coverage.
"After years of asking for health information for underwriting, we can no longer do that," said Judy. "I have had people so happy they cannot believe it after years of being denied coverage."
