The holiday season is upon us, and while everyone is out shopping for presents, what they really should be shopping for is health insurance.

But with so many different plans to choose from, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why Christopher Minniear from Murray Insurance is here to help. 

“When it comes to shopping for health insurance, many people are so confused that they end up paying more than they need,” said insurance agent Christopher Minniear. “That’s why I’m here to educate people and help them find a plan that matches their situation at a price they can afford.”

Originally from Venezuela, Christopher has been a licensed insurance agent for almost three years. Specializing in Medicare and individual insurance, Christopher is fluent in Spanish and strives to build relationships with his clients. 

“Instead of calling people over the phone, I prefer meeting with people face to face to form a connection,” said Christopher.

Murray Insurance Agency is a Florida Blue and Florida Health Care Plans agency for health insurance. Founded by W. Edward Murray Jr. in 1981, Murray Insurance helps people select the plan that’s right for them and their needs. 

Murray has eight different office locations serving Florida, and has assisted more than 250,000 individuals with their health insurance plans.

This year’s open enrollment period to sign up for a health care plan is from Oct. 1 through Dec. 15, and the period to sign up for a Medicare plan is from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.

“Open enrollment for Medicare will end on Dec. 7,” said Christopher. “But because Florida Blue and Florida Health Care Plans are 5-star companies, we have the privilege to enroll people past the open enrollment date. In fact, we can enroll them all year-round.”

In addition to health insurance, Murray also offers life insurance, dental insurance, and travel insurance, as well as vision, critical care, hospital, and accident insurance. 

“We also do group insurance for business owners that are looking to get into health insurance as a benefit for employees,” said Christopher.

Murray Insurance Agency is located at 120 Integra Breeze Lane, Suite 2B, in Daytona Beach. Their hours are 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
