Dearborn National has ended a distribution and marketing agreement with Rayant Insurance Agency Inc.
Dearborn National, a unit of Health Care Service Corp., Chicago, says the decision to end the agreement was mutual.
Health Care Service Corp. is the parent of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois and other Blues plans.
Rayant is a life and dental distribution unit of Horizon Healthcare Services Inc., Newark, N.J., the holder of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield licenses for New Jersey.
Rayant has been the exclusive distributor of Dearborn National life, disability and dental products in New Jersey; Dearborn National now intends to work directly with New Jersey brokers, the company says.
