We are seeking to provide coverage for those who don’t have any medical insurance and to assist those who do with the gaps in their existing coverage
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 9, 2009
Striving to fill a crucial need in the supplemental insurance space, ReZilient Direct has partnered with Assurant Health to provide quality supplemental insurance products that give customers both security and peace of mind. ReZilient Direct offers Assurant Health’s Cancer, Heart & Stroke, and Accident insurance underwritten by Time Insurance Company at an affordable price to those who have major medical insurance, as well as to those who do not have any coverage at all.
Supplemental insurance is often considered a “security net” for the majority of Americans who are underinsured or uninsured. Handling expenses that primary insurance does not, it offers coverage that is unencumbered by deductibles, co-pays, coinsurance requirements, pre-authorization requirements and other restrictions.
Along with the uniqueness of its offering, ReZilient Direct is unmatched in its ease of use. The company allows individuals to acquire policies from the comfort of their homes. The process is surprisingly efficient – only two to six underwriting questions are asked of potential customers. And all information is secure – ReZilient Direct guarantees that no personal information will be sold or shared.
ReZilient Direct chose to focus on Cancer, Heart & Stroke, and Accident supplemental insurance for several reasons. Most notably, the number of people affected by these health issues is staggeringly high. In addition, even those with major medical plans may have high out-of-pocket expenses when dealing with these challenges. “We are seeking to provide coverage for those who don’t have any medical insurance and to assist those who do with the gaps in their existing coverage,” says ReZilient Direct CEO, Greg Feste who himself is a Cancer survivor since December 2007.
ReZilient Direct partnered with Assurant Health to offer the best products available for reducing financial risk. “We couldn’t have found a better partner when it comes to protecting our customers and their families,” explains Feste. Assurant Health brings to ReZilient Direct 117 years of industry experience.
Brian Porter, Vice President, Voluntary Products at Assurant Health, said, “We are very excited about this new capability that ReZilient Direct is bringing to the marketplace. The immediate and convenient access to our products will be of substantial benefit to consumers. We believe that providing choices to individuals about how they protect themselves from the financial impacts of health issues is critical.”
