Mountain View, CA – AgileHealthInsurance, the Internet's first site dedicated to helping consumers understand the benefits of short term health insurance, announced today it has added Foundation dental and vision plans underwritten by Nationwide®. Now consumers who select a short term health insurance plan can enroll in dental and/or vision plans at AgileHealthInsurance.com.
These dental and vision plans offer consumers a broad range of choices. The Foundation dental insurance program includes several plans with varying premiums and benefits so customers can choose a dental plan that best fit their budgets and dental needs. Customers seeking vision coverage can enroll in a plan that allows them to see any eye care provider and provides savings on lenses, contacts, eye exams and more. It just takes minutes to enroll, and customers can sign up anytime.
“Nationwide Insurance is an established and trusted brand,” said Bruce Telkamp, CEO of AgileHealthInsurance.com. “Adding their Foundation dental and vision plans will help us meet the growing demand for consumers who are seeking to bundle dental and vision coverage with their medical health insurance.”
“We are excited to partner with AgileHealthInsurance, a leader in short term health insurance, to provide dental and vision plans to their members,” said Syed Rizvi, vice president and chief specialty insurance officer at Nationwide. “This partnership allows us to offer dental and vision coverage to an important segment of the population, people who might otherwise go uninsured.”
Dental and vision plans are available to Agile customers who purchase a short term health insurance plan.
