Beazley and Boston Mutual sign marketing agreement

MINNEAPOLIS, March 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beazley U.S. Accident & Health has entered into a new marketing agreement with Boston Mutual Life Insurance Company, a national provider of insurance solutions for individuals and at the workplace.

Boston Mutual will now market Beazley's gap medical product providing reimbursements for eligible out-of-pocket medical expenses, including deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance. This product requires an underlying major medical plan and works most effectively for groups with high-deductible plans.

Charlie Mabry, Vice President of Workplace Solutions for Boston Mutual said, "Gap Medical complements our wide array of workplace products and brings an extra measure of financial security for our customers and their employees."

Beazley includes the issuing company of Beazley Insurance Company, Inc. (BICI), rated A by A.M. Best. Its parent company, Beazley Group, was established in 1986 as a specialist insurer and reinsurer. Headquartered in London, the company has operations in Europe, Asia, Australia and the U.S., and manages five Lloyd's of London syndicates — all rated A by A.M. Best.
