PetPartners, Inc., the Newest Subsidiary of Independence Holding Company, Announces Extension of Long-standing Relationship with The American Kennel Club

NEW YORK, March 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Independence Holding Company (:IHC) announced that PetPartners, Inc., its newly acquired subsidiary that markets and administers pet insurance, has extended its relationship with the American Kennel Club (AKC).
“We are pleased to welcome IHC and this new relationship,” remarked Dennis B. Sprung, President and CEO of the American Kennel Club. “We are happy to have a strong and dedicated partner with an extensive history of providing quality pet health insurance. We look forward to helping American pet owners and breeders become more familiar with pet health insurance.” The AKC registers hundreds of thousands of puppies each year and PetPartners markets insurance plans through www.akcpetinsurance.com to those new registrants, offering new owners a means to ensure their dogs’ health and well-being as they grow. “The pet health insurance market continues to grow robustly with average annual growth rates of 12%, but yet, less than 2% of the dog and cat population in the United States is insured today,” shared Rick Faucher, President of PetPartners and IHC’s Pet Health Division. “The partnership that AKC and PetPartners continue to have is remarkable. The message is getting out to new pet owners and the growth in policy sales continues to rise steadily. We look forward to deploying IHC’s resources and expertise in designing and distributing insurance to expanding on that growth,” Mr. Faucher added. IHC has been in the pet health insurance business since 2011.  PetPartners is a pet insurance administrator based in Raleigh, North Carolina, which sells pet health insurance covering dogs and cats nationally, and has marketed pet insurance to AKC registrants since 2002. “From the first meetings with the AKC and PetPartners management, it was clear there was a longstanding success story upon which we can build,” commented David T. Kettig, Chief Operating Officer of Independence Holding Company. “IHC adds marketing, sales support and product resources to the equation and we look forward to accelerating the growth of insurance within the AKC constituency.”  “In addition, given PetPartners’ flexible administrative platform which is able to accommodate payroll deduction, IHC will be able to bring pet insurance to the worksite marketplace through its extensive broker and national account relationships,” stated Mr. Kettig.

Since 2002, PetPartners has been the exclusive provider of pet health insurance protection to registrants of the American Kennel Club through the AKC Pet Insurance. In 2004, PetPartners was selected by the Cat Fanciers' Association, the largest registry of purebred cats, to provide health insurance to CFA registrants.  In 2009, PetPartners began to offer its new PetPartners-branded products both to individuals and groups (such as associations, companies and credit unions).
