Shane A. Thomas


*Platinum Premier Producer

Read Shane's Bio

Shane started his self-employed career in 2006 working under the name of Shane Thomas Insurance, INC.  He first started out as an insurance broker working with American National.  With his life and health license, he was positioned to assist clients with auto/home/disability and life insurance.  

In 2008 he found what would be his calling and passion which was to help those on Medicare.  He started out as an independent captive agent for UnitedHealthcare.  This allowed him to gain excellent training and build a foundation to support his Medicare clients.  He would meet with individuals and groups to assist them when they were on Medicare A and B.  He would assist them in finding a Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement and/or Part D plan that was best suited for them.  During his tenure as a captive agent with UnitedHealthcare, he received many awards.  He received awards for being a top producing agent, MVP, and sat a Medicare Council for multiple years.   He was also selected to move to a management role starting in 2016 all while still maintaining building his personal clients.  

In 2019 he felt the need to move outside of a captive model to position himself as broker to better meet the needs of his clients.  He is now the Principal for Integrity Health Advisors.  This move has helped him assist those on Medicare with all the major carriers and products, not just UnitedHealthcare.  This provides a well-rounded approach to assist those that are on Medicare.  This has opened the doors to offer hospital indemnity, dental, and vision plans for his members for a one-stop-shop approach.

His role at Integrity Health Advisors also now includes providing an agency for new and seasoned agents to call home.  IHA provides a place for agents to get the training, support, and tools needed to build a successful Medicare business here in Colorado and beyond.
