You Deserve Great Care.

No healthcare insurance policy is “one size fits all.” Each individual should have a plan tailored to his or her needs and an agent invested in providing that custom plan. At Shoreline, you will always receive personal service and personal solutions.

Whether you need supplemental insurance for Medicare, self-employed health insurance, retiree health insurance outside Medicare, health insurance for the unemployed, or something else, we’ll find the right plan for you.

Our Clients

Read some of our client success stories to get an idea of how Shoreline can help you navigate the often murky and confusing health insurance waters.

Steve M. in Bloomington found an alternative to COBRA

“Having heard that getting private health insurance was all but simple I was expecting the worse when I found myself in the market for family coverage. Then I heard Allison Kraus speak and was quickly taken with her passion and professionalism in a subject as abstruse as insurance. Impressed, I turned to Allison for help. After accessing my families unique needs, Allison provided us several options and a recommendation. She made the entire process understandable and relatively painless. In less than one month, my family is now once again covered by a quality health insurance plan that is a fraction of the cost my Cobra would be. I entrusted my family to Allison and she delivered. Thank you!”

Kevin D. in Minneapolis found Self Employed Insurance

“Allison is the BEST. She saved my family more than $225 a month on health insurance last year by shopping around for a better policy that costs less, but keeps us with the same doctor. It’s added up to more than $2,700 in savings. She gets paid by the insurance companies and not by you, so you literally have nothing to lose and a whole bunch of money to save by calling Allison. Plus, she’s a friendly, terrific person you’ll love talking to. I recommend her to everyone I know!”

Lindsey T. in Plymouth found Self Employed Insurance

“Thank you so much for all your help throughout this process. If it weren’t for you, it would have been nearly impossible. You kept me up to date and answered all my questions so promptly. I really appreciate it…God bless people like you!”

Lori S. in Eden Prairie found supplemental insurance for Medicare

“I met with Allison Kraus yesterday and was quite impressed with her. She did some work ahead of time based on information I gave her. She was very knowledgeable. She’s young but I won’t hold that against her. She has been in the business several years and loves her job. She gets paid by the various insurance companies so there’s no charge to the client. 

“I came home with a lot of information and her recommendation for me. So it makes the process of choosing insurance supplemental to Medicare very easy. I would highly recommend her! (She also works with people with other health insurance needs.) Thank you for the referral.”
