Sterling Life Insurance To Underwrite NationCare

BELLINGHAM, Wash., Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterling Life Insurance Company and Associated Marketing of Virginia, Inc. (AMVA) today announced that Sterling Life Insurance Company will become the issuing carrier for AMVA's NationCare product line.  NationCare is the only fully compliant out-of-area solution for local health plans that need a credible option for multi-state employer groups.  This is an essential product capability for regional health plans if they are to grow local market potential since they typically do not have access to insurance licenses outside their service areas.  Sterling will assume the business currently insured by Fidelity Life Association.  

For NationCare, this business relationship means having a nationwide product solution as well as access to the substantial resources of Sterling, which is a member of Munich Re.  Currently, NationCare provides coverage for more than 6,000 members in 49 states. "We are excited about the expanded resources that will become available for our client health plans through our relationship with Sterling," said Hollins Riley, President of Associated Marketing of Virginia, Inc. "NationCare will now have the ability to provide retiree medical coverage and in-area dual option products for those health plans desiring such capabilities."

For Sterling Life Insurance, this means a stronger client base and an increasingly diverse business operation.  "This business relationship will allow us to help more health plans provide coverage to employer groups with employees who reside outside of the health plan's service area," said Patrick Collins, President of Sterling's Specialty Business division. "Our relationship with NationCare should enable more Americans to get the quality health care they need."
