Navigating Health Insurance with Care and Compassion
Introducing Kris Elliott, our October Employee Spotlights recipient and Loman-Ray's committed in-house nurse! Kris, our dedicated Nurse Navigator, simplifies the complexities of health insurance, offering expert guidance and advocacy to our customers. Her unwavering positivity and commitment to assisting others make her truly deserving of this recognition.
Before joining the Loman-Ray team, Kris spent an impressive 30 years as a hospital nurse, 15 of which in the emergency department, where every day was a whirlwind of the unusual and the interesting. It's no surprise that her passion for helping people transcended the walls of the hospital.
So, what led Kris to trade in her stethoscope for insurance policies? After three decades of standing on her feet for long hours, working weekends, and holidays, Kris yearned for a change that would allow her to continue assisting clients in a new and exciting way. The Nurse Navigator position at Loman-Ray offered the perfect opportunity to combine her healthcare expertise with a fresh approach to helping clients.
Kris's dedication to healthcare is evident in her choice of focus at Loman-Ray. With a background in nursing, she is committed to guiding our clients through the complex world of health insurance. Whether it's answering questions or giving claims advice, Kris is there to make sure clients feel supported and understood.
Kris's Nurse Navigator role is an uncommon position for an independent insurance agency. In her own words, "I don't know of any other local insurance agency that has a nurse navigator. It shows the dedication we have to client service."
If Kris could have any superhero power, she'd choose teleportation. Why? "I would love to get to faraway places like Paris or Hawaii for the weekend instantly without buying expensive plane tickets!" A power born of a desire to make life's luxuries more accessible. A relatable superpower for sure!
Kris’s dedication, unique background, and commitment to our clients make her a shining star in the Loman-Ray family. Thank you, Kris, for being the superhero our clients never knew they needed!
“Kris goes above and beyond with every client and employee she interacts with. We consistently receive feedback from clients that she is amazing at resolving issues and making members happy. She is an advocate on behalf of group health members and fights to get claims issues resolved. She also arms each member she speaks to with the knowledge to better understand their benefits and to be a better consumer.”
“Kris does amazing things for our clients and really few people in our organization ever see or hear what Kris does in her role. Kris helps individuals find doctors, medicine and correct billing errors which keep dollars in our members’ pockets. Kris's numerous tasks often go unnoticed, a common occurrence in the nursing profession where dedicated efforts often remain in the background.”
“Kris has a fantastic ability to create a comforting atmosphere for clients, especially in sensitive situations like discussing medical procedures and appointments. Her extensive nursing background shines through, making her an invaluable asset. Without a doubt, Kris has earned this recognition through her exceptional skills and genuine compassion.”
