Carol Ballenger is an independent insurance broker who specializes in Medicare. However, she thinks of herself as a teacher, with her subject being health and life insurance. She began her career as an independent agent in 2013, specializing at first in Medicare plans, and has since grown her product line to include life insurance and individual and family health plans. For her, it's not about selling - it's about helping people understand their options and the trade-offs between those choices.
Insurance is complicated, especially regarding the ins-and-outs of Medicare, and one size does not fit all. As a full-time professional broker, her focus is on maximizing value for her policyholders and being a resource to those on their insurance journey.
Ballenger is appointed with and certified to write Medicare plans for Aetna, Amerigroup, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennesse, Cigna, Humana, United Health Care, WellCare, Mutual of Omaha, and more.
