Rick Skayhan


“I’m a bit of a late arrival to the health insurance field. After graduating from the University of Oregon, my original goal was to become a college professor. But I was bitten by the political bug and spent the first decade of my working life running political campaigns in the western US. Since that was the era of the explosion in desktop publishing and all things internet-related, it led me to the media business where I owned and ran companies that produced magazines, newspapers and of course—websites. Due to some local consolidations in the media field, it was time to look for a new gig and I was offered a position as the Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications at Health Net’s Pacific Northwest unit. I enjoyed being in the health insurance industry and decided that working with employers and small business folks was both personally fulfilling and financially gratifying. I became an independent insurance agent/consultant and enjoy helping local employers find the right health/benefits package at the right price.”

” The benefits package for a client is the last thing I want to tackle…unless I have Rick to call. Rick is an extremely knowledgeable professional who quietly deals with my frenzy and parlays it into an excellent, robust group benefits package. Everyone wants people they can call on who can fix the problem, give advice, provide outstanding solutions, and make them look good — that is exactly what Rick does. Even more important to me, Rick is ethical. “
