International Gateway Insurance Brokers Partners With MEDILINQ
Date:9/6/2007

Shared vision to provide health benefits offerings to Hispanic consumers

and business owners in the U.S.

HOUSTON, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- MEDILINQ, Inc., a nationwide health benefits provider that offers uninsured or partially insured consumers and business owners substantial savings on healthcare, today announced the formation of its latest partnership with International Gateway Insurance Brokers, Inc. (IGIB). Based in Chula Vista, CA, IGIB is the largest U.S. provider of multiple types of Mexico insurance thru its international network of over 3000 brokers throughout North America.

According to the National Coalition for Healthcare, people of Hispanic origin represent the population segment least likely to have health insurance. Based on a three-year average (2003-2005), the NCHC website reports an average of 32.6 percent of Hispanics were without health insurance during that period(1), and this average is expected to continue its upward trend.

"Our international network of over 3000 brokers is frequently asked about health benefits programs or similar type of products by their clients," said Reynaldo Ricalde, President of International Gateway Insurance Brokers. "MEDILINQ's products are very appealing to our clients because they can receive savings up to 40% on medical and dental care and up to 60% on drugs and lab services without the typical high premiums attached to such savings. We are pleased to now offer MEDILINQ's products to our clients who are uninsured or underinsured and who need affordable health benefits for themselves and their families," added Mr. Ricalde.

"For many years, IGIB has been a trusted advisor to licensed/broker agents throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico," said Richard Doub, MEDILINQ's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "MEDILINQ is excited to partner with IGIB and to offer our health benefits program to its international group of brokers. We see it as an excellent opportunity to expand IGIB and MEDILINQ's products and services especially in the Hispanic marketplace in the U.S. and eventually, abroad," added Mr. Doub.
