Assurant Health says it will be bringing back an old name for a key underwriting arm, Fortis Insurance Company.[@@]
Assurant Health, Milwaukee, will rename the unit “Time Insurance Inc.” starting Sept. 6.
The unit’s name is changing as a result of a series of changes in corporate affiliation.
The new Time Insurance Company has its roots in a company that began selling disability insurance in Wisconsin in 1892. The company later shifted into the modern health insurance market, and it continues to be a player in the individual health, small group health, short-term health and specialty health markets.
