Insurance Coverage for All — And How Insurers Can Afford to Provide It

by: Maria Thomson

This book presents the results of research on why individual life and health insurers have not been highly successful at selling protection products in the mid-market.  The author concludes that the primary impediment to success is the cumbersome new business process, which she considers to be very treatable!  She introduces the concept of RAD – Rapid Assessment & Delivery – to dramatically reduce new business costs and the turnaround time from taking an application to delivering a policy.  For a preview of the first chapter, look the book up on Google.
