Symetra Partners with Brella on New Symetra Health Offering

Symetra Health offers wide-ranging supplemental coverage designed to ease the burden of financial hardships for employees

BELLEVUE, Wash.--()--Symetra Life Insurance Company continues to expand its voluntary benefits 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 costs. 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-plan solution that combines the value of supplemental health benefits with the convenience of user-friendly technology,” said Todd Dzen, vice president and Voluntary Benefits lead. “With Symetra Health, employers can help give employees peace of mind in the face of unexpected health challenges with wide-ranging coverage that’s easy for employers to implement and simple for employees to use.”

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

“We are thrilled to join forces with Symetra to make health hardships 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 Zarrillo, Chief Revenue Officer at Brella.

Symetra Health is the most recent 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 voluntary product suite includes critical illness, accident and hospital indemnity insurance, as well as GapAssist, a package of accident, critical illness and hospital indemnity benefits designed to complement any other plan, including major medical coverage paired with a Health Savings Account (HSA).
