IPA Family President and Chief Operating Officer David Keeler commented, “With the passing and implementation of ‘Obamacare,’ a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act (ACA), adding the SureBridge programs in conjunction with the supplemental insurance products we already provide through our internal IHC insurance carriers positions us to better serve the current and future needs of our ACA customers.”

IPA Family is proud that it is able to offer ACA compliant plans through some of the largest and most reputable insurers in the country. The SureBridge partnership will add vision insurance, critical accident, quick issue life insurance, non-insurance wellness products, and other solutions to the IPA Family product portfolio. Additionally, IPA Family represents three health insurance carriers through The IHC Group, which provide coverage for short term medical, critical illness, dental, fixed indemnity plans and its new Metal Gap supplemental series.

Keeler also added, “This special relationship allows us to collaborate with highly reputable industry leaders and, even more importantly, it provides us with the ability to equip our current sales advisors with enhanced solutions to market in states where we currently have no presence at all. As a result, we have immediate opportunities for high-level leaders who are willing to connect, invest and grow along with us.”

All sales advisors for IPA Family are licensed insurance producers. For more information about leadership opportunities with the organization, contact Dave Keeler to schedule an interview.
