Health care costs are high and getting higher. With Health insurance, you protect yourself and your family in case you need medical care that has the potential to be very expensive.
Unfortunately Taylor-Thomason is unable to offer Individual Medical coverage. The sole access for individual and family policies will be the Washington HealthPlanFinder and the Washington Health Benefit Exchange.
At this point we are recommending that each of our clients who desire Individual Medical coverage go online to the state exchange and determine what plan would best suit their needs. If you are qualified for a subsidy it will appear as you go through the steps and get your calculations.
Taylor Thomason would also suggest contacing Troy Nordlund with Pacific Northwest Insurance Brokerage, Inc. in Lakewood, WA if you need assistance with Individual Medical. Their office provides both comprehensive and major medical insurance for individuals and families.

Taylor-Thomason Insurance Brokers does offer Group Medical coverage. Our agency primarily works with Regence, Kaiser Permanente and Premera. If you are interested in Group Health coverage our office can send you a census to fill out. Once the census has been filled out our office can provide quotes.
Group plans have an annual enrollment period at the group's renewal, which is often called "open enrollment". Open Enrollment (OE) is the window of time from the first of the month prior to the group's renewal through the last day of the renewal month. Employees and dependents who did not enroll when initially eligible may enroll during this period. Coverage begins the first day of the group's renewal month. Generally, all new employees will become effective the first of the month following satisfaction of the new-hire probationary period requirement.
Changes to your group's probationary period can be made only during the annual open enrollment period to be effective on the date of renewal. Once members are enrolled, the company will send member cards to the address provided in the member's record.
