Team of bilingual agents in more than 160 locations to provide free health insurance enrollment services in communities across California
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Freeway Insurance announced today that it will again offer free health insurance enrollment services during the Open Enrollment period for 2016-2017. (While the company’s health insurance enrollment services are offered free of charge, customers will still have to pay for their insurance premiums, unless they qualify for government subsidies.) The company will be selling health insurance in more than 160 stores across California, with over 100 fully bilingual agents available to help.
Valeria Rico, Chief Executive Officer of Confie, Freeway’s parent company, said: “With open enrollment upon us, we’re delighted to once again serve as a trusted resource for consumers in need of health coverage.” Rico added, “There is still a need to educate the public about health insurance – particularly about the subsidies for which many consumers are eligible. We’ve made sure we have plenty of Freeway Insurance brokers available during open enrollment who can offer guidance about selecting plans.”
Freeway will offer health insurance plans from various marketplace health insurance companies including Kaiser Permanente, Anthem Blue Cross and Molina Healthcare.
The company has opened more than 40 new locations in the past few years to better reach the communities they serve. Last year during open enrollment, Freeway obtained government financial assistance for more than 90% of their health insurance customers.
Darrin Silveria, Confie’s Chief Sales Officer, said, “We know from prior years that many consumers want in-person guidance as they explore all their health coverage options. Choosing the right plan can be overwhelming, and for that reason we have our experienced, bilingual agents ready to simplify this process for our clients.”
