Great American Insurance offers health insurance in two formats. The first is a supplemental policy used in conjunction with standard health insurance or Medicare/Medicaid policies. The second method is by providing insurance for captives established by companies or nonprofits. Under a captive model, Great American Insurance would act as a reinsurance provider to cover the captive against substantial losses. Great American would also act as manager of the captive.
Great American Insurance Group Supplemental Health
As with any supplemental health policy, a Great American policy is not your primary source of health insurance. It is meant to act as a supplemental insurance policy to cover things that your primary policy will not. For example, your primary health insurance may cover cancer treatments only up to a certain dollar amount. When those benefits have been exhausted, your supplemental policy kicks in. It is not uncommon for some people to carry multiple supplemental policies for this reason.
Great American also provides specialized supplemental health insurance policies for specific diseases or medical conditions. These types of policies work the same as supplemental insurance except for the fact that they are targeted at the medical condition in question. They would not pay benefits for any other health needs. For details about this type of supplemental health coverage customers should contact a local agent or their captive association.
Great American Insurance Group Agents
Great American’s business is so diversified and spread out across the globe that it would be virtually impossible to manage it effectively without the help of local, independent agents. The company employs agents around the world that specialize in a few of the products or services Great American offers. While it is possible that some agents would represent all Great American lines, it is more likely that they would choose a few lines according to whatever else they offer through their agency.
Great American does not provide an agent locator tool on the website. However, they do provide an e-mail link that customers can use to submit questions about agents in their area. For the agents themselves, the site has a dedicated section where they can login and access array of agent tools. From this secure portal agents can file claims, access policies, make payments, and so forth. Many of the same services are available to Great American customers on their own section of the website.
