John Ross of Lake George recently sent a letter of gratitude to AHI for helping him enroll in an affordable health insurance plan. Here is his message:
After being let go very fast from my former employer, I ran into a problem affording COBRA. Luckily I knew to talk with (Enrollment Specialist) Kathleen Dorvee at AHI and she showed me better options for my care. Working with Kathleen, we ran into a ton of problems registering me on the network and seeing my options. It was important to get the care I needed because I have a pre-existing condition and my previous employer failed to provide me with adequate options for care. Thank you AHI for coming through for me!
