eApproval technology allows customers to apply for health insurance online
eHealth, parent company of eHealthInsurance Services, has implemented eHealth’s eApproval technology at Celtic Insurance Company (CIC), a health insurance provider based in Chicago, Illinois.
eApproval technology allows customers to apply for health insurance online through company’ website, and submit their application with an electronic signature and receive an immediate response from CIC. eApproval will also enhance the online experience for consumers opting for individual, family and short-term health insurance.
Gary Lauer, Chairman and CEO, eHealth, said: Celtic’s implementation of eApproval gives consumers one more compelling reason to purchase health insurance from Celtic at eHealthInsurance.com. Approximately 40 percent of our customers are uninsured, and waiting up to two weeks or more for an underwriting response just extends the period of time that they’re uninsured. eApproval can eliminate that period of uncertainty for a significant number of those who apply for plans from Celtic.
