“Pivot Health has been a market leader in the short-term medical insurance space since 2016. Our experienced team is eager to expand Pivot’s product portfolio with Pan-American because of its unique positioning that captures the primary needs consumers and insurance brokers are asking for when seeking an insurance solution while between major medical health insurance policies,” said Deirdre Ragan, President of Pivot Health.

“A short-term policy from Pan-American policies will give Pivot Health access to unlimited doctor office visits, zero copays for hospitalization, waived deductible requirements for routine screenings, and more. Pivot Health is now poised to offer multiple STM insurance solutions from various carriers no matter what the healthcare landscape looks like in the coming years.”

Pivot Health short-term medical plans also offer free telemedicine visits and Point Health advocacy services to help policyholders find doctors or facilities in their local area, set timely appointments, and know healthcare pricing for services before an initial visit or treatment begins.

“This partnership with the short-term medical specialists at Pivot Health is a significant milestone for Pan-American Accident & Health,” said J.J. Lafleur, Vice President U.S. Group, Pan-American Life. “Pivot Health’s unmatched digital channels facilitate the immediate expansion of our diverse offering of short-term medical insurance plans, designed to address the unique needs of individual and family healthcare expenses in today’s landscape.”
