/PRNewswire/ -- Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: HIIQ) ("HIIQ" or "the Company"), a leading cloud-based technology platform and distributor of affordable health insurance, life insurance and supplemental plans, is expanding its reach to Spanish-speaking consumers with the launch of a Spanish language option for its MyBenefitsKeeper (MBK) product.
Currently, there are limited options for Spanish-speaking consumers to browse health insurance information in their native language. Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. created its tailored MBK Spanish language solution with this underserved community in mind, giving members easy access to important health insurance plan details.
"Research indicates that 40 to 50% of U.S. Spanish speakers with limited English proficiency are uninsured," said Jan Dubauskas
, HIIQ's Vice President & Senior Counsel. "The launch of our Spanish language MyBenefitsKeeper portal reinforces our customer-centric approach and solidifies our commitment to creating specialized products that meet the needs of all members we serve."
MBK is a technology resource that works with health insurance carriers to manage billing and member access to health insurance policy documents. The MBK online portal streamlines member data, consolidating everything from benefits to bills and payments.
The updated toolkit is live in both the Google and Apple stores. Spanish-speaking consumers, including those shopping select plans on sites such as AseguMed, can easily access policy renewal and payment information, among other details, via the MBK dashboard.
Current policyholders can visit the MyBenefitsKeeper login page to sign in and select a preferred language to get the most from their benefits: https://members.mybenefitskeeper.com/.
