Bryan Strickland


Bryan brings plenty of passion to his work, priding himself on taking complicated concepts and translating them into easy-to-understand language for GoHealth readers. A graduate of the acclaimed journalism school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Bryan has spent his entire career in journalism, reporting from all corners of the country and writing about everything from the Super Bowl to Medicare’s version of the Super Bowl – the Annual Enrollment Period.

“Nothing makes me happier than knowing that one of my pieces of content could make all the difference in someone’s understanding of their health insurance options. My parents serve as a sort of a case study for my work – my father is enrolled in Original Medicare while my mother is enrolled in Medicare Advantage. Even for a couple married more than 50 years, healthcare is a personal journey, and I try to bring a personal touch to articles aimed at getting people on the right path.”
