GREAT DEALS ON COSTCO SERVICES
TO YOUR HEALTH
COSTCO IS LEADING the way to guide and
educate members on available options in the
new world of healthcare reform, while delivering high-quality services. The Patient
Protection and Affordable Care Act has
caused material changes in the healthcare
plans Costco members can access and use.
In California, Costco has partnered with carrier and industry leaders to offer members
customized insurance solutions. In addition,
Costco has launched new resources to support members all year long, including the
Costco Health Reform Information Center
and its dedicated member-advocacy team. To
learn more, visit
Costco also offers individual plans
through Aetna to Costco members in 10 other
states: Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia,
Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania,
Texas and Virginia. To learn more about plans
available in these areas, call 1-866-286-3155.
THE ELEMENTS OF wind, fire and water
can be used to create, but they can also
destroy, as evidenced by natural disasters
across the country. Hurricane season is here,
and the one-year anniversary of Superstorm
Sandy—the second-costliest hurricane in
United States history—is approaching.
While not everyone in the country has to
worry about hurricanes and the water damage they can cause, homeowners should
know that even a minor water-related incident
can cause extensive damage if it is not handled properly. Prompt action is the best way
to repair water damage and prevent more
damage in the future. Wood flooring can take
days to show damage from water, but if you
don’t work quickly to stop the water from
spreading and dry the affected areas, it may
be too late.
The key to minimizing water damage is
to contact your insurance provider immediately, so they can assess the loss and work
with trained water-remediation specialists to
dry and clean your home.
Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance
works with their Costco policyholders to
have licensed professionals at homes quickly,
often within four hours of a water loss being
reported. For more information and to get a
free no-obligation quote from Costco’s exclusive auto and home insurance provider,
please call 1-888-404-5365 or go to Costco.
