    "Enroll Alaska is a division of Northrim Benefits Group that was launched as brokerage to focus on the individual marketplace. It receives commission from health insurance companies based on enrollment numbers. As of Wednesday, that number is two. There were 25 agents hired just to help people sign up for insurance.
