IHC Group launches “Aspira A Mas” to serve Hispanic communities

Independence Holding Company IHC today announced the formation of a new sales and marketing division called Aspira A Más, which will create professional career opportunities for Hispanics and will provide much needed major medical and ancillary health insurance products to Latinos living in the United States. Initially, Aspira A Más will focus on recruiting advisors as well as offering insurance solutions to consumers in Miami and Phoenix, but will soon expand its outreach to Hispanic

communities in many other metropolitan areas, including San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas and Chicago. IHC also revealed that it has signed Cynthia Olavarria, star of Tierra de Reyes and a former Miss Puerto Rico, to be its spokesperson in a comprehensive social media and digital marketing campaign in conjunction with Telemundo television stations in the two target cities. The Hispanic Institute, a leading Hispanic American empowerment organization headquartered in Washington D.C., has also recently endorsed Aspira A Más for its efforts to create career opportunities and provide low-cost valuable supplemental health plans, including dental, vision, accident medical, critical illness, short-term medical, as well as advising on ObamaCare plans. David T. Kettig, Chief Operating Officer of IHC, commented, “IHC is uniquely positioned to be a leader in providing career opportunities for Hispanics to become licensed insurance advisors selling quality health and life products to members of the Latino community. This is an extremely hard-working community that often struggles to create career opportunities. Through the Aspira A Más division of our subsidiary, IHC Specialty Benefits, Inc., we aspire to create a community-based movement that will enable Hispanics to have careers as licensed professionals, while offering these advisors the ability to bring major medical and ancillary health coverages to their communities that will improve their well-being and quality of life.”
