It may include some familiar faces, but Simmons Health Insurance Partners is a new business for the Hermiston area.
Josh Goller purchased the health insurance side of The Simmons Agency in January, splitting those services from the main company and launching an affiliated business.
Prior to the change, Goller had handled the bulk of the health insurance work for The Simmons Agency for a decade. He said the same quality and breadth of service is available under Simmons Health Insurance Partners. In fact, some customers might not even realize it is a separate business.
“Even though perhaps the the structure has changed a little, folks can still expect the same level of service,” he said.
The business is located at 125 Southeast Seventh St., where the original Simmons offices were.
Goller said health insurance has become an especially important topic during the COVID-19 outbreak, as people lose their jobs and have to try and navigate the process of making sure they still have coverage. Others are worried about what will be covered if they get sick, or are trying to navigate normal life changes like the transition to Medicare coverage.
