NU Online News Service, Oct. 29, 1:16 p.m. – CNA Financial Corp., Chicago, says it is expanding a program to sell group dental and eye care plans from Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., Lincoln, Neb.

The CNA Group Benefits sales force began experimenting with selling the plans in seven cities in April, primarily to groups of 10 to 500 members.

The pilot program went well, and CNA sales associates outside the original cities have shown a strong interest in selling the Ameritas plans, CNA says.

CNA says it will now sell the Ameritas plans throughout the country.
