Days Until Open Enrollment:
Health insurance is mandatory under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While many businesses in Maine offer their employees insurance plans, some companies do not. If you work for an employer who doesn’t offer a plan, are self-employed, retired early, or can’t afford the insurance your employer offers, and are searching for insurance for yourself and your family, Wheelers Insurance can help. Not everyone has the same medical needs. Our agents can help you find the policy that covers you in all the ways you need it to. Open Enrollment runs from November 1st to January 15th this year. You can always enroll within 60 days of a qualifying life event. (move from another state, lose your existing coverage, marriage, divorce, birth, adoption.)
Your Health Insurance Agent
Crystal Labbe was born in Connecticut but became a world traveler soon in her early childhood as she moved to Italy while her father was in the U.S. Navy. After her family made the trek back to the US to grow roots permanently in Maine, she then became a young mother. Because of this, she felt as though her dreams were not going to be accomplished as she had once thought before. However, this gave her motivation.
Wanting a good life for her kids, Crystal ventured out to find a job where she could have longevity – a workplace to call home. Something that was refreshing and new, something that was completely out of her wheelhouse. Soon after, she had applied at W.J. Wheeler Insurance Agency in hopes that this could be her new calling. That it was–she got the job, and the rest is history!
After Crystal joined this agency, a change of ownership had been in discussion. Once W.J. Wheeler, now Wheelers Insurance, had soon made the transition over from a family-owned business to a now employee-owned business.
Her career at Wheelers Insurance has blossomed. Not only has she received her health and life license, making her the only Health Insurance agent in the agency, but she is now a co-owner of this company. Even though ownership frightened her at first, she took the challenge in full force and has helped create a better work environment while simultaneously making Wheelers a more common household name.
Growing up Crystal often heard, “you are our future, don’t mess it up.” She did not take this lightly as it pushed her to work extra hard and teaches her own children this same lesson. She embodies hard work, passion, and resilience through all her life lessons and accomplishments.
As Wheelers grows, Crystal is also continuously growing as an agent, owner, mom, and friend.
