Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, September 25, 2009 – With the number of uninsured in the United States continually rising, Precedent Insurance has launched affordable individual health insurance for the estimated three million uninsured young, healthy adults in the state of Texas with SmartFinds Internet Marketing.
SmartFinds Internet Marketing provides corporations with complete digital marketing solutions. CEO Melih Oztalay has 13 years experience with Internet and digital services in developing strategies that utilize all facets of the World Wide Web.
“There is more to the digital marketplace beyond a website, search engine and advertising,” said Oztalay. “Businesses need to embrace the web head-on. Precedent Insurance has made this commitment and we are excited to be part of this new revolutionary individual health insurance.”
“Precedent is offering Texans a ground-breaking suite of individual health plans that meet the specific needs of the young and healthy, especially the uninsured,” said Mike Grandstaff, Precedent’s CEO. “We are offering very affordable coverage with the built-in flexibility to increase coverage levels through our ‘Coverage on Demand’ model, which is truly unique to the industry.”
Coverage on Demand™ allows individuals to purchase a highly affordable lower level of coverage, with the guaranteed ability to increase their level of coverage within a plan year to cover any unanticipated illness or accident, up to $5 million, even after incurring such expenses.
With monthly premiums that average around $100 per month for healthy, young individuals, Precedent | REMIX health insurance plans are highly affordable. The Coverage on Demand products include “Tempo”, a zero deductible plan that pays 60% of in-network eligible medical expenses; “Rhythm”, with a $250 deductible that pays 70%; and “Groove”, a $500 deductible plan that pays 80%. (All plans pay 60% of prescription drug costs and provide an annual wellness benefit of $400, in both cases waiving any deductibles). Maximum paid claims at the initial level are $1000 for Tempo, $2,500 for Rhythm and $5,000 for Groove. But the unique twist to these plans is that additional coverage up to $5 million is guaranteed, at 100% in network, in the event of an unforeseen contingency such as a traffic accident or appendectomy, even after the need arises.
In order to promote these services digitally, SmartFinds began its campaign well before Precedent’s official launch by engaging in a pre-launch digital marketing campaign to increase link popularity using a mini website. This was augmented by tapping into social media marketing through communities, blogs, and creating informational knowledge centers throughout the digital marketplace. Following the official launch of the Precedent website, SmartFinds has augmented its digital marketing program with digital advertising that is geographically, demographically and category targeted. The campaign is using rich media banner advertising, sponsored search advertising, sponsored content advertising and a variety of other solutions that all work together in the multi-dimensional environment of the World Wide Web.
“Our focus is to have a multi-directional marketing campaign that will drive traffic to the Precedent website from more than just search engines”, said Oztalay. “We are using the digital advertising campaign for short term results, while we continue with the digital marketing campaign that will provide Precedent Insurance the staying power on the web.”
