More about Jory
I have spent the last 10 years of my life focused on helping others through challenging times in their life, whether it be marriage issues, financial issues, or just simply helping to provide directions. In that same vein, I love what I am doing with eHealth: Providing Medicare beneficiaries a safe place to turn to get honest feedback, with unbiased recommendations, in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. I love taking something that can be incredibly overwhelming and making it relatively effortless. I walk people through the decision-making process so that they are confident in the plan they ultimately choose.
Three words that describe me:
Patient, understanding, and honest.
Favorite thing to do when not at work:
Work with families in planning their future.
Favorite place to visit and why:
Panama. I had an amazing time there, from snorkeling in the Atlantic Ocean to cruising through dirt roads in the jungle. Most amazing place there is an old pirate fort called Fort San Lorenzo. Amazing history in Panama.
What I like most about helping people find the right Medicare plan options:
Typically, when people call me, they are at the breaking point with their plan options. They have talked to several insurance companies and hear one thing, their friends are telling them another, and Internet blogs are saying something different. At this point, anyone would be confused and frustrated. What I find is most of these sources of information are all FEAR-based decision making. They are trying to scare you into a plan or scare you away from other plans. What I enjoy doing is explaining the options from a factual perspective. I explain how the plans work with Medicare, what the benefits are, and simply educate the beneficiary so he or she can make an educated decision. Because let’s face it: Every individual is different, and the plan that is working great for your friend might not be the right plan for you.
