No limits. That’s the philosophy embraced by the team at David Berkley Insurance Group.

Headed by Patrick Althof, Mark Odabashian and Mitch Zofka (pictured above at top), David Berkley is changing the way we buy insurance.

“Most people in the area will recognize our names as having been affiliated with a different company,” Patrick says. “Where previously our focus was exclusively on health insurance, now we’re able to offer the full spectrum of products.”

The David Berkley team still offers health insurance, for both the under 65 and over 65 markets. But they’ve also added home, auto, small group and business insurance to the mix.

It’s Medicare Time
“Annual Medicare enrollment is happening now until Saturday, December 7,” Mark says. “A lot has changed this year and insurance companies have revamped their offerings to provide even more options.”

“The competition for business has really heated up,” Mitch states. “Plans are more comprehensive and features have been added to make them even more attractive. Now is the time to find out if there’s a better option available to you. You might even be able to get more and spend less. Just give us a call to set up a convenient time for a review. It won’t cost you a thing and can eliminate a lot of stress.”

Affordable Care Act Enrollment
The tax penalty for maintaining insurance has been eliminated, but the need for coverage is clear. Open enrollment for the ACA (Obamacare) is going on now until Sunday, December 15.

“Based on the size of your family and household income, you could get a huge subsidy from the government, which might make taking advantage of an ACA plan really affordable,” Mark says. “And with the ACA, you can have a preexisting condition and still get coverage.”

If you don’t qualify for the subsidy, the guys say there are a ton of coverage options outside of the ACA that offer creative solutions to obtaining healthcare coverage.

Every Phase of Life
“No matter where you are in life, we can be there for you,” Patrick emphasizes.

“Because we have the freedom to work with any carrier, we can get you the best deals on the insurance products that make the most sense for where you are in life. Whatever type of insurance you’re shopping for, we’ve got options.”

And when it comes to customer service, the guys describe their approach in one word: Relentless.
