Jane Sander from our local NBC affiliate, KNDU, came by my office at Mid-Columbia Insurance yesterday to ask me some questions about winter driving and what drivers should do after an accident on icy roads. My primary advice was to get off the road as quickly as possible. If you were in an accident because the roads are slick then the next person on the road may have the same problem. It would be tragic to have a serious accident while exchanging information.

Group Health

Group Health

Time to make a health insurance decision. Looks like it boils down to a choice between 2 GroupHealth HSA (Health Savings Account) plans, either the Cooperative (HMO) or the Options (PPO) plan.

Both seem to be identical except the Option plans will cover ‘Out of Network’ doctors at 50% but is 10% more expensive, costing us an additional 10% or $1400 per year. Seeing that we have not used our health insurance for years and that the HSA plans have a $4000 deductible, I see no reason to pay the extra money. Seems the reason people choose the PPO plan is so that they will have access to a favorite doctor. Praise God, have not had to worry about anything that the urgent care center has not been able to handle for years.

Still, if anyone has any last minute advice, I a all ears.

8390 W Gage Blvd, #106
Kennewick, WA 99336

State Farm insurance agent, Chad Ward, had a Ribbon Cutting with the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce this past Thursday. The office is located across the street from Olive Garden at 8390 W Gage Blvd, Ste 106, in Kennewick. Working with Chad are account representatives Nickolas Konen and Holly Veach. (Don’t tell Chad but they are the ones that do all the hard work.)

The ribbon cutting had a good turnout from the chamber as well as representatives from the State Farm District Office and Mayor Pro-Tem Sharon Brown read the Mayor’s proclamation making Chad’s office ‘Business of the Day’.
