Get to Know Your Agency and Your Carrier
When you purchased a supplemental health insurance policy marketed by Platinum Supplemental Insurance, you completed your application with your local Platinum insurance agent. At the time, your agent probably mentioned our partnership with State Mutual Insurance Company. Platinum is your supplemental health insurance agency, and State Mutual is the underwriting carrier.
You are likely familiar with this arrangement. Most home and auto insurance policies are sold for a national carrier by a local agent. This makes it possible for you to access stable, high-quality insurance products through face-to-face interaction with an individual you trust.
Without further ado, let us introduce you to your supplemental health insurance agency and your carrier. Then, we’ll review who you need to contact in case of a question or claim.
