June 1, 2011 Concord, CA – WorldMed Assist, a leader in Medical Travel for self-funded employers and consumers, announces a joint marketing venture with the San Carlos, CA, office of Wells Fargo Insurance Services, to promote Medical Travel programs to Wells Fargo’s self-funded employers. As a result of this venture, Wells Fargo recently implemented a WorldMed Assist program with a 5,000 member client that is a leading supplier of professional services to the Federal Government. Through this program, the client’s employees and dependents are accessing high quality healthcare through WorldMed Assist’s Centers of Excellence Network, while the client is reducing its healthcare costs.
“We are thrilled to offer our Medical Travel services to Wells Fargo Insurance’s self-funded employers”, says Jim DiFalco, Vice President of Business Development for WorldMed Assist. “Partnering with Wells Fargo’s forward thinking Employee Benefits team has been a pleasure. They take a strategic approach to helping clients consider new programs such as Medical Travel. And when a client implements the program, they provide the right level of support to make sure the plan design is effective, and the implementation is smooth”.
According to Dick Keenley, a Wells Fargo Vice President for Employee Benefits, “We are always looking for innovative ways to help our self-funded clients manage their cost while improving their employee benefits offering. When we decided to offer Medical Travel to our self-funded employers, we wanted a partner with a proven track record of excellence in case management, had self-funded industry experience, and were flexible enough to meet the demands of our clients. We are very satisfied with the WorldMed Assist partnership.”
