Physicians Mutual and Precoa Celebrate One Year by “Putting Down Roots”

OMAHA – June 4, 2018 – Physicians Mutual and Precoa are celebrating their partnership by “putting down roots.” To mark a tremendous first year, the preneed powerhouses will plant at least 365 trees – one for each day – and maybe more.

You can join the celebration and have a tree planted in your honor as well. Simply visit and fill in the short form that pops up. Your tree will help replenish forests in the Mississippi Valley that was recently devastated by hurricanes.

Why trees? Since 2004, Physicians Mutual has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree in honor of every customer who passes away and in honor of customer birthdays. Since the partnership began, Physicians Mutual has planted 465,000 trees – and is now on its fifth forest.

“We’re excited to celebrate one year of partnership with Precoa, and there’s no better way to mark the occasion,” said Brice Ballard, vice president at Physicians Mutual. “With two new products, and adding funeral homes to our family, we are excited to be giving back this way.”

Preneed product is not available in all states. Underwritten by Physicians Life Insurance Company.
