Streamlined implementation. A single point of contact to help ensure benefits are ready when your employees are ready to enroll. 

Personalized enrollment strategies. Our approach educates and engages employees in the ways they prefer, so they can understand the value of your supplemental health offerings, which helps them enroll in the right coverage for them. Guardian offers multiple options to help employees feel confident about their benefits decisions – from one-on-one counseling to self-guided online tools, and more. 

A proactive approach to claim settlement. When a short term disability, accident, cancer, critical illness, or hospital indemnity claim comes in, we automatically look across all supplemental health coverages that could apply -- no additional questions or paperwork required.  We’ll process the claim with all other coverages that apply, then deliver all the qualifying benefits to the employee in one check.
