Assurant Employee Benefits has released an enhanced Benefits Tools mobile app, wherein dental insurance cards can be viewed directly on the smartphone. Patients will not be required to carry the dental insurance card physically while visiting the dentist, as the card can now be printed, faxed or e-mailed to the dentist via the Benefit Tools app.
Android and iPhone (News - Alert) users can now avail the enhanced mobile application, with extra facilities like Find-a-Dentist and Find-an-Eye Doctor, for free. Smartphone users can easily locate dentists and eye doctors in the vicinity of their current position using the app, which utilizes Google (News - Alert) Maps technology. Users are also provided the option to search for dentists and eye doctors using zip codes. Users can also purchase applicable personal dental plans via the app, which directly connects to Assurant Employee Benefits.
In a release, Karla Schacht, senior VP of Information Technology, CIO and CSO at Assurant Employee Benefits, said, "This update includes many enhancements and we will continue to look for opportunities to make our customers lives easier through technology whether they're at home, at work or on the go. Assurant Employee Benefits listens closely to consumers, employers, brokers and providers to determine how technology can make their interactions with us simpler and more meaningful."
Social media tools like Facebook (News - Alert), Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and YouTube can also be used by customers to link with Assurant Employee Benefits via the enhanced mobile app. Customers are also offered assistance and technical support by Assurant Employee Benefits through phone or e-mail. The latest mobile app is available for download at the website.
Better-quality employee benefits and services such as long-term and short-term disability, life insurance, voluntary benefits like cancer, critical illness and accident, dental and vision coverage, and disability reinsurance management services are offered by Assurant Employee Benefits.
