HEALTH INSURANCE EXPERIENCE:
Constance Zarkowski has owned a health insurance general agency for over 32 years. During that time, and in the 37 years that she has been active in the insurance business, she has worked closely with insurance companies and health plans in order to provide the best possible coverage for individuals and employees.
She has helped design and implement health plans. During her years in the insurance business she has become knowledgeable of the various administrative procedures used by health plans to pay claims and manage care. As an insurance agent and general agent she has effectively worked to solve problems for clients and agents.
Today, new federal and state laws, particularly the Affordable Care Act, have been enacted that require health plans to offer many new benefits; from expanded coverage for previously limited conditions, such as pregnancy and mental illness, to instant coverage for pre-existing conditions when certain requirements are met. Many more new laws are pending. In order to obtain maximum benefits people may need expert help. Constance Zarkowski is the experienced expert.
