Joshua Brooker

Sitting Member

Joshua Brooker has spent the last 8 of his 11 years in insurance specially focused on Individual Health, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, and Micro Groups (<50 employees). After an insurer informed him that he’d be responsible for two deductibles due to his wife technically being in labor at midnight New Year’s Day (two calendar years), he started down a path to help consumers navigate the health insurance market. Due to that initial event, he became certified across the board and is now the lead Principal between managing brick-and-mortar insurance brokerage, PA Health Advocates, building a web app, SnapHealth, and Serving as Executive Director to Helping Health, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that coordinates with Medicaid partners to assist low-income households.
