Sterling Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Munich Health North America, has formed partnership to become the issuing carrier for Associated Marketing of Virginia's (AMVA) NationCare product line.
NationCare was founded in 2001 by its parent company AMVA to provide local health plans with a means of serving companies beyond their traditional service areas.
Currently, NationCare provides coverage for more than 6,000 members in 49 US states.
Sterling will assume the business currently insured by Fidelity Life Association.
AMVA president Hollins Riley said NationCare will now have the ability to provide retiree medical coverage and in-area dual option products for those health plans desiring such capabilities.
Sterling president of Specialty Business Division Patrick Collins said this business relationship will allow them to help more health plans provide coverage to employer groups with employees who reside outside of the health plan’s service area. Their relationship with NationCare should enable more Americans to get the quality health care they need.
