USPTA renews partnership with Rezilient

October 12, 2014

HOUSTON — The United States Professional Tennis Association announced on Monday the renewal of its partnership with Rezilient Direct Corporation to continue to give USPTA-certified members in the U.S. the opportunity to purchase additional health coverage.

Rezilient Direct, which is based in Austin, Texas, is one the first companies to offer supplemental health benefits directly online to the consumer. Their extensive interactive platform allows customers to enroll and purchase supplemental health insurance within minutes and get covered in as little as 24 hours. They also have a Call and Live Chat center to assist customers throughout the process.

“As the leading organization for tennis-teaching professionals, we want to be able to offer our members as many resources as possible so they can advance and grow in their careers. This program through Rezilient Direct will give USPTA-certified members the peace of mind in the event they are not fully protected through medical insurance should a major medical issue occur,” said USPTA CEO John Embree. “We’re proud to be able to offer this benefit to our members again.”

Rezilient Direct offers four supplemental products in the United States. Their core business is voluntary products such as Cancer, Accident and Heart & Stroke insurance underwritten by American General Life Companies, and Hospitalization insurance underwritten by Heartland National Life Insurance Company. This year, they are adding Short-Term Disability, Term Life, Dental and Vision to their portfolio.

“Rezilient Direct is excited about the continued partnership with the USPTA. We are enthusiastic about continuing to offer the affordable supplemental health benefit packages offered over the past year as well as many new products which will be rolled out over the coming months,” said Rezilient Direct CEO Greg Feste. “Our products, when pooled together, offer additional coverages to gap the high deductibles experienced by many consumers entering the health exchanges as a result of the Affordable Care Act. Supplemental health benefits are advantageous and timely in a new era of health care cost protection in which many individuals face the challenge and opportunity of wisely shopping for their own coverages as opposed to receiving them through their workplace insurance plans.”
