Guardian Provides National Access to In-Network Medical Benefits

Members Who Seek Care Outside of their Regional PPO Network Area Pay

In-Network Price

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (Guardian), a leading provider of employee and voluntary benefits for small and mid-sized companies, announced the introduction of the national Extended Access "travel network" for its health plan members. Members utilizing health services offered through most of Guardian's regional PPO networks can obtain medical coverage across state lines -- at in-network prices -- when they travel or temporarily live outside of their network service area.

Traditionally medical plans offer in-network discounts within a particular region. Many employees do not have access to in-network prices from a national pool of providers. With the Guardian Extended Access Network an employee from New Jersey can receive in-network care in California, for example, if they are traveling or temporarily relocate to care for a family member.

"As we approach the height of open enrollment season, employees will appreciate the value of a medical plan that gives them affordable access to care on a national level," said Tim Bireley, Vice President, Group Medical, Guardian. "We are focused on providing high-quality employee benefits to small and mid-sized employees and employers. Our Extended Access Network is part of this commitment. Families who have dependents, such as college students who reside outside of their region, or employees who travel frequently will benefit greatly from this enhanced, cost-saving benefit."

The company has issued a series of educational surveys and reports to help employees, employers and benefit decision makers better understand how they can jumpstart their financial lives and improve employee recruitment, retention and satisfaction by maximizing the use and power of their workplace coverage.
