About OFM Benefits Consulting
Licensed in 35 states, OFM Benefits Consulting, LLC is a Kansas City-based, independent insurance agency offering affordable health insurance policies for both individuals and companies, employee education programs and employee benefits consulting services. The OFM Health Division in Kansas City specializes in providing qualified health insurance plans with health savings accounts (HSAs), which are consumer-driven health care plans that lower monthly insurance premiums and provide innovative, tax-deductible, savings mechanisms for investing the difference. Over 95% of the health insurance policies written by OFM agents are HSA-qualified plans.
In addition to providing qualified health plans with HSAs for individuals and businesses nationwide, OFM Benefits Consulting has pioneered the introduction of HSAs throughout the Midwest by offering frequent HSA training seminars, participating in regional industry conferences and speaking on such syndicated radio talk shows as Moneyline with Peter Newman (Kansas City's KMBZ News 980 AM, Saturdays from 11-1).
Scott Borden, Director
Scott obtained his insurance license in 1989 at age 22. For the first year, he focused on life insurance and investments as a Registered Representative with Prudential. The following 5 years, he worked as a district manager for Design Benefit Plans, a company focused on individual health insurance plans. In 1995, Scott became an independent agent.
He was first introduced to Medical Savings Accounts (MSAs) in 1998 and was immediately convinced it was the future of health care. In 2000, Scott joined OFM Benefits Consulting, LLC (formerly Olympic Financial Marketing) to create a health insurance division focusing on the tax advantages offered by MSAs within an established nationwide independent life insurance agency.
With the introduction of Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) in 2004, the demand to share the message of reduced health care costs and the tax advantages of HSAs has grown exponentially. To satisfy the demand, OFM trained agents have become champions of HSAs, developing educational tools, HSA calculators, training presentations and websites to help explain the HSA concept and the role HSAs will play in breaking through the entitlement mentality that plagues our healthcare system.
Additionally, OFM agents have been asked to speak at numerous workshops, radio programs, and conventions around the Midwest, including:
- NewsTalk Radio 980 AM KMBZs “Moneyline” show with Peter Newman
- Cargill’s Harvest Health Consumer Awareness program aired on RFDTV
- American Farm Bureau Federation Convention
- The National Federation of Independent Businesses
- The HSA Trustee Services Workshop in Wisconsin
- The Missouri Society of Accountants
- HSA Forum at the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City
- The Flint Hills/Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation HSA Workshop
- The Kansas City area Medical Society
- The Small Business Administration
- Kansas Chamber of Commerce and numerous city chambers
- A Career Counselors Organization
With ever-rising health insurance costs, education is the key to understanding the true savings available with HSAs.

We would love the opportunity to compare your current health insurance plan with an HSA / health insurance combo plan.
