Physicians Mutual Expanding Preneed Program to More States

OMAHA, Neb. — If you’ve flipped through the latest issues of funeral service’s finest trade publications, you may have seen the news: Physicians Mutual is expanding its wings – and territory – by rolling out its preneed program to more states. Funeral homes in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Mississippi and Texas can now experience the power of a progressive preneed program with Physicians Mutual.

“This is an exciting development, and the timing couldn’t be better,” said Brice Ballard, vice president at Physicians Mutual. “We have a lot of innovations coming soon to our preneed program, and our goal is to make them available to as many funeral homes as possible. We believe in the power of preplanning and want to extend that to more families in more communities.”

The company’s latest innovation is the Custom Index Performance option, which allows funeral home owners to experience higher growth potential without worrying about losing money if the market takes a downturn.*

Physicians Mutual intends to continue its expansion and will soon offer preneed insurance in most states. To find out if their preneed program is available in your area, or to learn more about the Custom Index Performance option, call 1-800-974-1802.
