Judy Sawyer, an agent for The Bailey Health Group and Florida Blue in St. Augustine, has earned membership in HealthCare.gov’s Elite Circle of Champions for 2018. Ms. Sawyer attained this exclusive honor by helping individuals and families make 100 or more plan selections through the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace during this year’s Open Enrollment Period.

The 2018 Open Enrollment period officially closed on December 15, 2017. Ms. Sawyer has been helping individuals and families weigh their coverage options and enroll in coverage that meets their needs with The Bailey Health Group since 2013.

“Health insurance is complicated for all of us. Being able to help people navigate the Federal Marketplace (healthcare.gov) and providing them the guidance they need to get the best coverage at the least cost while meeting their needs is very rewarding,” said Ms. Sawyer about the recognition. “Only having 45 days for Open Enrollment this year was challenging, but we, as a team, did what we needed to do — including working evenings and weekends –– to help as many people as possible.”

Agents and brokers, like Ms. Sawyer and The Bailey Health Group, play a crucial role in educating consumers about the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace, both during annual Open Enrollment and throughout the coverage year.
