SwissLife and Sanitas are launching SwissLife SimplyCare, a simple healthcare insurance solution to suit every life situation. This new offering is accompanied by an extension of the existing distribution cooperation agreement between these two leading Swiss insurance companies.

SwissLife SimplyCare combines mandatory basic coverage with supplementary insurance for inpatient and outpatient care to create a customised healthcare plan. Sanitas health insurance offers SwissLife clients a wide range of insurance models. Anyone who takes out SwissLife SimplyCare is still free to optimise their basic insurance every year. In the field of supplementary insurance, Sanitas offers an ideal range of products to suit every life situation.

A comprehensive financial protection provider thanks to expanded distribution cooperation

Ivo Furrer, SwissLife's CEO Switzerland: "We are delighted that our insurance advisors are now able to offer their clients such a highly attractive product as SimplyCare, which leads the way in the Swiss market in terms of its simplicity and customer service orientation". For SwissLife this joint product launch with Sanitas, however, represents not only an extension of its product range, but also an important step in its transition from pure life insurer to comprehensive financial protection provider. "Joint product launches and the expansion of an already successful distribution cooperation agreement with Sanitas enable us to position ourselves as a leading integrated Swiss insurance company with a comprehensive range of products and services in the field of financial and healthcare provisions," says Ivo Furrer.

Joint market and product development

With their launch of the new healthcare insurance SwissLife SimplyCare, available exclusively through SwissLife advisors, SwissLife and Sanitas have developed a joint distribution and market development concept. While Sanitas boosts SwissLife's sales support, SwissLife's helps to promote the marketing and distribution of the health insurance products offered by Sanitas. Ivo Furrer: "This cooperation will prove crucial in enabling us to offer further joint product and service innovations, which are not only tailored to changing customer circumstances, but can also be introduced quickly and efficiently to SwissLife clients."
