Symetra partners with Brella on Symetra’s new health offering

BELLEVUE, Washington–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Symetra Life Insurance Company continues to expand its voluntary benefit solutions by partnering with insurtech Brella to offer Symetra Health, a new supplemental health insurance plan. Symetra Health covers over 13,000 conditions in one plan to help ease the burden of out-of-pocket medical expenses. With data-driven personalized technology and dedicated member support, Symetra Health will empower employees to get the most out of their benefits.

“Symetra Health offers a one-stop solution that combines the value of additional health benefits with the convenience of user-friendly technology,” said Todd Zen, vice president and head of voluntary benefits. “With Symetra Health, employers can give employees peace of mind in the face of unexpected health challenges with comprehensive coverage that’s easy for employers to implement and easy for employees to use.”

Symetra health benefits are based solely on ICD-10 diagnosis codes. Three categories of coverage are available — moderate, severe and catastrophic — covering conditions from concussions and dehydration to chronic tonsillitis and heart attacks. Approved benefits are usually paid within 72 hours of an approved claim via PayPal, Venmo or online banking. There are no pre-existing condition restrictions or medical insurance requirements, and each plan is supported with a streamlined onboarding process and dedicated customer service.

“We are excited to join forces with Symetra to make health challenges less of a financial burden for employees today. This partnership will help thousands of Americans receive benefits that ease the financial stress that comes with unexpected out-of-pocket medical expenses,” said Mike Zarillo, Chief Revenue Officer at Brella.

Symetra Health is the latest addition to Symetra’s suite of employer solutions. In June 2022, the company announced new partnerships with Nayya, a leading benefits experience platform, and Selerix, a leading benefits administration provider. Symetra Health is currently only available in certain states. For more information, please contact your Symetra Benefits representative.

Symetra offers group life and disability insurance, absence management and stop loss. Its suite of voluntary products includes Critical Illness, Accident and Hospital Benefit Insurance as well as GapAssist, a package of Accident, Critical Illness and Hospital Benefit designed to complement any other plan, including basic medical cover combined with a health savings account ( HSA).
