Guardian Premium Protect Sets Single-Digit Medical Renewal Rates at Initial

Purchase

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), a leading provider of employee and voluntary benefits for small and midsize businesses, today announced the introduction of a new program that helps employers manage health care costs by locking in a single- digit medical premium renewal rate when companies sign-up.

Traditional plans have an annual renewal cycle and often require employers to estimate their future healthcare expenses. This annual cycle has proven difficult for some employers at a time when health care premiums have significantly outpaced inflation.

Guardian Premium Protect(SM), a new offering for groups with 51-150 employees was designed to mitigate this problem by eliminating the guesswork related to second year medical benefit renewals.

The program will be available in New Jersey, Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia and the Chicago and New York metro areas, for plans sold with effective dates beginning October 1.

"Guardian Premium Protect(SM) takes the guesswork out of health care budgeting," said Tim Bireley, Vice President, Group Medical, Guardian. "By locking in their second-year rates when they sign up, and incorporating additional member cost sharing, Guardian is providing employers with a path to a manageable, predictable healthcare budget. Employers enrolled in our program can save money and time on the budgeting process. Producers can help relieve their client's anxieties about unpredictable and out-of-control health plan renewal rates by offering the rate at the point of sale."

Guardian Premium Protect is a two-year medical PPO program with a prescription drug benefit, vision discount access*, wellness resources and high and low cost-sharing plans.
