An underwriting services firm says a new paramedical support program can make the underwriting process 6 or 7 days faster.

The new iParamed Expedite service can quickly format information about applicants for life insurance, long term care insurance, health insurance or Medicare supplement insurance in the electronic format that an insurer uses in its underwriting systems, according to Hooper Holmes Inc., Basking Ridge, N.J. (NYSE Amex:HH).

The service can be used with fully underwritten and with simplified issue applications, Hooper Holmes says.

The company recently introduced a related service, the iParamed e-Exam electronic applicant exam program.
