Lynn Michel Insurance, LLC was founded by Debbie DeChambeau. She started her insurance career working at her fathers insurance agency in high school.
After years of caring for her uncle and mother, Debbie decided to focus her insurance practice on helping seniors understand their Medicare choices. It was the experience of caring for family members that made her aware of how complicated and confusing Medicare options can be. It is Debbie’s goal to help others minimize their frustrations and have a better understanding of Medicare.
Debbie is licensed to sell both life and health insurance and property and casualty insurance (think home and auto) and has been licensed for over 35 years.
Today, she focuses exclusively on working with the senior population around Medicare and other senior benefits.
She reviews the options from original medicare to medicare advantage, prescription drug to medicare supplements (Medigap). In addition, Debbie will help you understand other insurance benefits such as dental, critical illness, long term care and life insurance.
Debbie’s goal is to help simplify what might feel like an overwhelming process. Her extensive insurance background combined with her care-giving experience allows her to help seniors understand the big picture and strategies for getting help when needed.
One of the way she educates her clients is through workshops and webinars. Here’s a list of upcoming educational events.
In order to sell Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug insurance, Debbie goes through an annual certification process. She has completed the 2021 AHIP certification and has completed the certifications process for each carrier she represents.
She is a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), an Accredited Advisor of Insurance (AAI) and a Certified Professional Insurance Agent (CPIA). Each license and designation requires ongoing annual training which keeps her current on insurance changes and coverages.
When Debbie isn’t helping her clients, she loves to garden. It’s a hobby she has had since she was a child and has some plants from her grandmother in her garden.
In addition to gardening, Debbie runs and does triathlons. In 2018, she completed the NYC Marathon which was her first!
Debbie DeChambeau is also the host of 3 podcasts: Seniors We Love, The Business of Insurance and Divorce Exposed.
