Your Health Insurance Shop Agents Recognized by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Somerset, PA– Three Individual and Senior Product Specialists with Your Health Insurance Shop in Somerset were recognized recently as Nationwide Top Performing Agents by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

Kelly Barron, Heather Kiraly and Cristy Pritts, received national recognition as members of the HealthCare.gov Champions Circle for their success during the 2017 Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment which runs November 1 through January 31, 2017.

Agents and brokers, who are certified through a registration process in order to assist people in enrolling in health insurance through the Marketplaces via HealthCare.gov, receive recognition when they exceed 20 consumers making plan selections on HealthCare.gov. The Specialists at Your Health Insurance Shop located at 130 West Main Street in Somerset have already helped more than 200 individuals to choose a plan during this open enrollment season.

“Agents and brokers, like the ones we have recognized, are there for people in the community,” said Kevin Counihan, Marketplace CEO. “They help people get the coverage they need for their families, when they need it.”

Nationally, a record number of people signed up for Marketplace insurance coverage this fall with Pennsylvania among five states with the heaviest reported enrollment, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. People who still do not have health insurance for 2017 have until January 31 to sign up through the Marketplace via HealthCare.gov. Your Health Insurance Shop agents will also help people determine if they are eligible for a tax subsidy, compare the health plan options and sign up online. There is no fee for their services.
