Information for Professionals
Who I am - Joe Santiago is an independent insurance agent who works with all of the major companies offering Individual Health Insurance for all ages and assistance to Medicare Beneficiaries.
What I Do - As an independent benefit consultant, I conduct a detailed needs analysis to identify specific individual health care needs. I then make recommendations as to which options are best suited for my clients. Because I am independent, I can be objective in my recommendations. There is no fee for my services. However, if a potential client enrolls in a plan with me, I am compensated by the plan they join. Compensation is similar and level with all carriers.
I regularly conduct educational workshops at One Senior Place and at many other locations in Central Florida. There is no selling conducted at my presentations as per Federal law. I am happy to bring my workshops to your location at no cost to you.
How I Can Help You - I affiliate with many professionals who often have contact with Medicare Beneficiaries. Some of these professionals include Elder Law Attorneys, Guardians, CPAs, Physician Offices, Insurance and Financial Professionals, and non profit organizations. These professionals have used my expert knowledge to provide experienced guidance for themselves and their clients. They have found the information and assistance I bring enhances the value of their practice. The associate knows that their clients receive superior service from me and that I have minimized the probability of outside solicitation.
Where to Find Me - I understand the value of a professionalism. This is why my local office is located at One Senior Place, 715 Douglas Ave., in Altamonte Springs. One Senior Place is a professional office building with businesses that cater to the needs of people 50 and over. I have premier office space with access to conference rooms and an auditorium. Everyone who visits me there is extremely impressed. Of course if someone is unable to come to my location, I can meet them at their home, your office or another appropriate location.
