St. Louis, MO (June 28, 2019) The Keane Insurance Group, an independent broker of medical professional insurance, has recently aligned with Leavitt Risk Partners, providers of BLISCare, to protect physicians and patients against the cost of complications derived from surgical procedures. This strategic alliance will help Keane expand and grow its customer base in the surgical specialties such as bariatrics, plastics, orthopedics, and more.
BLISCare provides protection for both physicians and patients should a known complication from surgery occur. The plan steps in and pays for medical bills related to complication care that would otherwise cost the physician and/or patient additional money. BLISCare is an established product that has covered over 40,000 procedures and paid out over $35 million in complication-related medical bills and is backed by major insurance carriers.
John Keane, President of The Keane Insurance Group, said, “We are excited to announce this new alliance and look forward to the opportunities that it brings to the agency. I believe it will help us serve our clients better as well as set us apart as one of the few brokers offering BLISCare.” Keane will initially roll out the offering to surgeons in Missouri, Illinois, Florida, New York, and Texas. The plan helps surgeons differentiate themselves as well by providing guaranteed costs on elective procedures.
With more than 4,500 physician, facility, and hospital clients, The Keane Insurance Group is one of the largest independent brokers of medical professional liability/malpractice insurance in the country. Established in 1995, Keane provides all lines of insurance focused on the healthcare industry.
