About Blue Kamen Benefits

Darren Braude and Trish Schrade founded Blue Kamen Benefits in 2007. Having crossed paths several times since they both entered the industry in the early 1990s, they joined forces because they share a common belief – a client is for life. This belief is now part of the culture at Blue Kamen Benefits and you will find the principals still engaged in the day-to-day process of sales and most importantly, client service. Success does not translate into delegation of responsibility and the relationship does not end once an account has been established as you may find at some of our high-turnover competitors. This client for life focus has served them well as Blue Kamen Benefits enjoys an almost perfect client retention record.

Insurance can be so confusing and hard to understand, but Blue Kamen Benefits makes it easy to understand, she puts it all in plain English, working with each and every employee until all of their questions have been answered. Her knowledge is really just incredible! I can’t thank her enough for the many, many years of getting me through open enrollment! MELISSA M – Major Auto Dealership.

Thanks to the intervention by Blue Kamen Benefits, my doctor FINALLY sent the bill correctly and I can see on a statement from our insurance carrier that the patient responsibility is nothing besides the copay I gave them. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Jack A – IT & Logisitical Support Provider.
