Guardian Life Insurance Company of America (GLICOA) is one of the nation’s largest insurance companies. Founded in 1860, it employs over 5,000 health care specialists in 80 branches across the country, with headquarters in New York City. A member of the Fortune 300, GLICOA offers not only health care plans, but a variety of dental, vision and life insurance packages.

While GLICOA is a large insurance provider, it operates as a versatile, close-knit company. Its policyholders are owners, allowing them to keep a watchful eye on its services and investments. Employers who offer GLICOA insurance to employees can choose between HMO, POS or PPO packages, creating an ability for the customization of the best benefits package available.

Although GLICOA is most-often recognized for their dental program, they are quickly becoming well-known for a diverse assortment of insurance and annuities packages. Guardian subscribers can choose to enroll in life insurance, disability, group and individual medical and vision packages, 401(k) plans, income insurance and retirement programs. To manage these many options, GLICOA is split into two separate, smaller entities: Guardian Healthcare, which oversees the management of medical insurance and similar services, and Guardian Investor Services, where securities and annuities are the main focus.

GLICOA has recently integrated new policies to assist its customers, such as the inclusion of erratic and unforeseeable events that were once a threat to coverage – like hospitalizations and pre-existing/chronic conditions, for example. Its merger with Destiny Health Plan also allowed GLICOA to help reduce customer costs and reap the maximum benefits from coverage via a “consumer-controlled saving account.”

In early 2015, Guardian rolled out a new department entitled the “VOC (‘Voice of the Customer’) Program.” It is described as the crux of ensuring that the customer’s experience is streamlined and worry-free. The overall philosophy of the new program focuses on building a relationship with consumer, beyond that of simply providing insurance requests and offering self-service. While most large insurance companies use annual surveys to learn more about its customers, Guardian’s new VOC program seeks to collect daily feedback and offer a variety of ways for subscribers to give their opinion on how to better their experience. Their goal is to create a more improved relationship with its customers, leading to a better understanding of how to meet their current needs while anticipating future needs.

GLICOA works with over 120,000 U.S. employers to provide benefits to nearly six million hard-working Americans and their families. We understand that managing your own care and ensuring that it’s affordable can be challenging, no matter which insurance company you subscribe to, and we strive to take excellent care of all policyholders.
