Beth Moffett started her career in 1996 in the Health Insurance industry working with Pacificare Secure Horizons – working solely on the Medicare line. In her first year she realized this was the path for her career – helping people understand their medical insurance with patients and care. After some time, she moved departments and handled more of the members troubleshooting. It was here that she developed relationships with both Medicare in Seattle and Social Security office employees locally. When Pacificare Secure Horizons moved their offices to California, she took a short break to work with high school students, placing them in internships and job shadows. Today, she has been working with individuals and families for over 12 years and she is here to stay.
Beth says working with individuals to find the exact plan to meet their needs is very rewarding. She believes in taking care of her clients full circle – she walks them through the process with compassion and sensitivity as she knows this can be a confusing, hard, and often scary time for most as it involves their health and their pocketbooks. Beth stands firmly behind wanting what is best for her clients over all else. The majority of her clients are throughout Oregon, Washington, and California, but thanks to referrals she has clients all over the US.
