Beneflex Insurance Services, a full-service benefits advisory firm, is pleased to announce that Amanda Johnston has joined the firm as a benefits client advocate.

She will focus on employee advocacy for the firm’s clients.

Johnston brings to Beneflex more than 20 years of customer service experience and a vast knowledge of the insurance industry, including large and small group employee benefits and individual life insurance.

She is a licensed health, accident and life agent, and worked as a client care consultant with Neovia Integrated Insurance Services for the past 12 years. She was previously a supervisor in the Policy Issue department at Chubb Sovereign Life Insurance.

With her skill set, empathy, professionalism and tenacity, Johnston is able to provide an excellent experience to clients while walking them through the mind-boggling and broken health-care system.

In her words, “Making a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis is my ultimate goal. I want Beneflex callers to feel like they are the most important person in my day and feel confident that I will do everything in my power to answer their questions and resolve their issue. I want to provide a sense of comfort and relief to our Members in knowing they have ‘a friend in the insurance business’ who cares about them and understands their needs.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
