HFG Coastal Insurance has moved a few blocks up Spring Street to accommodate the substantial growth the firm has experienced in recent years. In fact, they have doubled in size since 2011 and added two new agents. The new agents are Michael Talen and Ty Barnhart.
The Paso Robles insurance company has relocated to 1818 Spring Street in Paso Robles. As a full-service financial planning firm, HFG Coastal Insurance offers every type of insurance and the ability to broker with almost any A+ rated firms.
The firm is constantly searching for ways to better assist their community and clients, says owner Dee Hinds. “From health insurance to estate and financial planning, HFG does it all, and from one location,” he says.
One new service that HFG has added addresses President Barack Obama’s new Patient Protect and Affordable Care Act. “We’re the local experts on the Affordable Care Act, and employ 4 of the 17 agents in the North County who are trained to help with enrolling people for coverage under this new Act,” Hinds says. “We are pleased to offer our expertise and assistance at no extra charge.”
HFG is coordinating with Twin Cities Hospital and other agents in the North County to set up enrollments, as well as being available for individual appointments.
