What People Are Saying About Us
Richard & Cynthia - -
So Tim was recommended to us several years back from a friend of ours when I was approaching 60. I finally called Tim but Joe took the call. It was apparent to us that Tim's approach to servicing Seniors who are in need of an understanding of Medicare was passed on. Joe was Great, informative, knowledgeable, and easy to work with! Thanks Tim & Joe!Laura M - -
Joe Camden has helped me and one of my co-workers considerably as we were trying to find our way through this Medicare confusion. What was once something that I approached with hesitation, Joe has taken the time to find the right solution to my Medicare concerns. I appreciate Joe's professionalism & commitment so very much.

Joe was very attentive to our situation with me and my husband. We travel around the country for business and the plan that he chose for us will work great! I would recommend Joe to any of our friends or family members.Douglas R - -
I've worked in the insurance business for 18 years and I can honestly say that I have never met another insurance professional who is as passionate and as focused on customer service as Tim. The first ingredient in his work is integrity. If you are considering working with an insurance professional in any capacity I strongly suggest you contact Tim.

Tim Altman and Senior Choice Medicare Solutions (SCMS) have been offering senior products through JSA since 2012. In that time, SCMS has become one of our top-producing Managing General Agents with UnitedHealthCare in both Washington and Oregon. SCMS recruits, trains, and motivates quality agents through meetings, calls and e-mails, to offer health insurance options to Medicare-elgibles. In additions to execellent production, SCMS agents have proven to be doing business the right ways. JSA has had no report of complaints or other compliance issues from the carrier with which SCMS is doing business. We at JSA have full faith and confidence that Tim Altman and SCMS will continue to do an exceptional job for Washington and Oregon seniors in the future.Grace D - -
We've had the privilege to work with Senior's Choice Medicare Solutions (SCMS) over the past two years. Their commitment to assisting those on Medicare through extensive education while being a neutral advocate is why we partnered with SCMS! The value to us is not needing specialized staff to educate clients on Medicare products. We simply refer them to a Medicare help line to get personalized services by a professional insurance representative. They provide outreach year-round, since many beneficiaries need assistance beyond the traditional open-enrollment period which runs from October 1 to December 7. SCMS created a personalized business plan for us designed specifically for our wants and needs. We continue to hear positive praise of the service they provide to our member and patients.
