June 6, 2018

ORANGE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 6, 2018--Following the announcement last fall by Kaiser Permanente naming  Word & Brown General Agency a general agent for California small group business, Kaiser Permanente has now awarded a large group contract to Word & Brown for Fresno and San Diego. The new agreement enables Word & Brown’s brokers based in Fresno and San Diego to offer employers with 101-300 employees health coverage from Kaiser Permanente effective July 1, 2018.

“This new contract with Kaiser Permanente is very exciting for us. We look forward to working with our current and new brokers who are interested in offering Kaiser Permanente to their large group clients,” said Jessica Word, president of Word & Brown. “We are one of the largest general agencies in the state and this contract will help us broaden our large group portfolio and expand our work with brokers based in Fresno and San Diego.”

The new contract means brokers in Fresno and San Diego will no longer have to co-broker large group Kaiser Permanente business. Brokers in these two areas can now write coverage for small groups and large groups through one general agency: Word & Brown.
