Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Cirrus Medical Staffing (cirrusmedicalstaffing.com), an industry leader in travel nursing and travel therapy healthcare staffing, has recently partnered with United Healthcare, one of the largest and most respected healthcare providers in the US, to offer comprehensive healthcare coverage for its healthcare travel professionals. The partnership stems from Cirrus’ desire to provide its healthcare travel professionals with unequaled comprehensive medical insurance.
“Cirrus takes pride in taking care of its travel professionals. We ensure that all our employees—both travel nurses and travel therapists—enjoy excellent benefits,” Cirrus President Randy Holloran said. “We’ve always offered great healthcare coverage. This partnership is taking it to the next level in terms of accessibility and services. This healthcare plan is the exact same healthcare plan that we offer our internal employees, so it illustrates our level of commitment to those that provide travel healthcare services on our behalf. Many healthcare staffing firms offer very limited plans to their travelers, or no plan at all. We’ve made the commitment to offer one of the best plans in the industry through UnitedHealthcare because our travel nurses and travel therapists deserve the best we can offer.”
UnitedHealthcare is widely recognized as having one of the strongest networks of any insurance provider in the United States. With Cirrus’ new healthcare plan, employees will now be able to take advantage of United Healthcare’s wide array of offerings.
Cirrus’ medical insurance plan under UnitedHealthcare includes coverage designs with reasonable deductible, co-insurance and maximum out-of-pocket costs. Covered employees will now be able to download their ID cards into their tablets or smart phones and access several online services provided by UnitedHealthcare. New employees will also be glad to know that the Cirrus UnitedHealthcare plan covers pre-existing conditions from the first day of employment.
