Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Rick Faucher has accepted a board position as Director at Large with North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA), an organization comprised of pet health insurance companies and pet health professionals.
“I am honored to be part of North American Pet Health Insurance Association, and to serve with so many executives who are committed to ethical practices and collectively working together to preserve quality care, encourage emerging technologies and build community within the pet health insurance industry,” said Faucher, Chief Business Development Officer for IHC Carrier Solutions, which is a member of The IHC Group.
Independence American Insurance Company is one of three insurance carriers that are a subsidiary of The IHC Group, and the only IHC carrier that underwrites pet insurance.
“A May 2013 scientific statement by the American Heart Association demonstrates that pet ownership reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. As a company that cares about the health and wellbeing of every member of the family, we believe healthy pets ultimately mean healthy pet parents. IHC wants to be at the forefront of this growing trend of pet insurance coverage,” said Faucher.
