TAMPA, Fla., March 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIIQ), a leading cloud-based technology platform and distributor of affordable health insurance, life insurance and supplemental plans, today announced that President & CEO Gavin Southwell presented a Key Note address at Insurtech Insights – Europe’s largest Insurtech conference on how HIIQ uses data and technology to successfully deliver value to consumers.
“HIIQ is helping individuals and their families in America by providing affordable solutions that meet their demands and needs, all whilst achieving market leading consumer satisfaction,” Southwell said.
Mr. Southwell highlighted the new mobile application for MyBenefitsKeeper, which allows members to have access at their fingertips to critical features like the ability to speak with a doctor over the phone or video conference, update payment information and search for a doctor in the member’s area.
He also discussed how the operational improvements in compliance and customer service, since he became CEO in 2016, have been recognized by a recent Multi-State regulatory review. The review has been closed without any issues identified and without payment of any fine or penalty.
“Rightly so, health insurance is very highly regulated at a state and federal level and we are very satisfied that the most detailed regulatory review possible conducted over a multi-year period, and covering all aspects of our business identified no issues, and has allowed us the opportunity to work with regulators to continue to strengthen our controls,” concluded Mr. Southwell.
