RESERVE – Recently moved from Lutcher, Jeanne Bourgeois Insurance Agency LLC., an independent insurance agency, is located at 3919 West Airline Highway in Reserve (next to O’Reilly Auto Parts) in the St. Mary Plaza strip mall. They can be reached by phone at (985) 479-2227 or by e-mail

The grand opening was held on Wednesday, Feb. 11.

The agency specializes in the senior market.

“We don’t fit you to a plan, we fit a plan to meet your needs. We help seniors decide which health plan is best for them and can offer a variety of Medicare plans”, said Bourgeois.

“We sell Medicare supplement plans and Medicare Advantage Plans such as HMOs, PPOs and Private Fee-For-Service Plans, along with Medicare prescription drug plans. Medicare plans are what I really love to sell and I love to work with seniors. There’s always something you learn from seniors and I feel my life is greatly enriched by these relationships.”

They can help with individual and group health insurance quotes by shopping around and get the best rates available. They can also provide quotes for children who nare no longer eligible for coverage under their parents’ health plan.

They offer whole, term and universal life insurance policies, and also sell final expense plans and do funeral pre-need planning.

“Its human nature to usually put off making our final arrangements, but relieve your family of that difficult burden of making decisions for you after you’re gone. Come by and get free funeral planning information and let us help you get that peace of mind from knowing all things will be in order when that time comes”, said Bourgeois.

At Jeanne Bourgeois Insurance Agency, a professional agent can help with financial and retirement planning. That’s more important now than ever, and they have a professional agent who can help with this need.

As an independent agent, Gwen Smith can help untangle the web of insurance questions on coverage. Smith is happy to sit down on a one-on-one basis to review current coverage and give competitive quotes for home, mobile home, auto, motorcycle, flood and business insurance.

With yet another hurricane season around the comer, Smith wants everyone to know that flood loss is not covered under homeowner policies.

“Everyone lives in a flood zone”, she said. You don’t have to live near water to be flooded.”

Flood coverage is also available to business owners and residential renters.

“I look forward to providing you with quality service and insurance coverage with a personal touch,” said Smith.

When asked what makes her insurance agency different from others, Jeanne is quick to say, “It’s the service after the sale. People are confident we’re going to take care of their business and they leave here knowing they are important to us.”

Jeanne and her husband Michael are long-time Gramercy residents.

Another endeavor Jeanne is working on is the publishing of a book, called, “The Best Gift,” about overcoming and persevering through life’s obstacles and situations. A portion of the book’s proceeds will be donated to families battling cancer.

“It all about doing what you love and loving what you do that makes you successful”, said Bourgeois, “and that sums up our agency and our agents.”
