Swiss Life and Sanitas launch "Swiss Life SimplyCare" and expand their existing distribution cooperation agreement

31.05.2012

Swiss Life and Sanitas are launching Swiss Life 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.

Swiss Life SimplyCare combines mandatory basic coverage with supplementary insurance for inpatient and outpatient care to create a customised healthcare plan. Sanitas health insurance offers Swiss Life clients a wide range of insurance models. Anyone who takes out Swiss Life 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, Swiss Life'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 Swiss Life 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 Swiss Life SimplyCare, available exclusively through Swiss Life advisors, Swiss Life and Sanitas have developed a joint distribution and market development concept. While Sanitas boosts Swiss Life's sales support, Swiss Life'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 Swiss Life clients."
