About the Owner

Angela Harris, "The Insurance Lady", is the owner and broker of Insurance Professionals of America, Inc. She was raised in Sarasota and has lived and worked in Manatee and Sarasota counties over 45 years and has 30+ years of experience in the insurance industry. She has helped thousands of people all over the state of Florida. Angela is licensed to write Medicare plans in Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. She is also appointed with all national carriers and a variety of local carriers, offering a broad portfolio of plans.

Angela has a full-time staff, as well as licensed and caring brokers who specialize in the different types of insurance her agency has to offer. 

It’s very important to use a licensed broker for a variety of reasons, such as being able to reach your broker at any time to understand your plan’s annual review options each year as they change. Too often we find that people are put on the wrong plans when they call customer service numbers from the internet. Angela will always let you know when it is time to switch or keep your plan and whether or not you should switch to a different carrier. She knows the intricate details that matter the most to you.

Medicare, Medicaid, Part A, B, C, D, and E can be perplexing with so many rules and compliance guidelines. Additionally, each county and state have different plan types. Angela can carefully identify the appropriate plan for each person by demonstrating compassion and patience while listening to and asking questions to assess each individual situation.

Medicaid is very different in each state and she can help anyone apply to see if they qualify, and if so, at what level. For those who qualify, there are may plans available that offer a $0 premium and $0 co-payments for services rendered, personal emergency response systems, transportation, home delivered meals, virtual doctor visits, enriched dental and vision plans, hearing aids, prescriptions, and various over-the-counter item credits for the member.

Angela helps many people of all ages who need other types of insurance as well. Veterans are very important to Angela. She serves many of them by aligning the right fit plan for their needs alongside the VA care they receive. It’s like having the best of both, more choices and resources and no waiting for care anywhere. No matter what the case is, she’ll make it easier to understand.

She’s here for you when you need her, not just at enrollment!
