Los Angeles, CA – May 23, 2017 – Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive story featuring Emerge, a tech company that makes insurance for emergencies accessible, easy to understand and easy to buy.

Founder and CEO, Wes Thompson will discuss Emerge’s easy, affordable way for people to alleviate medical debt by securing emergency insurance.

Emerge has also created the world’s first virtual advisor for emergency insurance. This advisor asks a few simple questions about a person’s lifestyle, budget and insurance situation, and then recommends a policy to help fill in the gaps in coverage.

Thompson says that emergency insurance from Emerge can truly benefit anyone. He explains, “Emergency insurance generally is a category of products that’s designed to help fill the gaps in the basic health insurance plan that you’d sign up for. They’re typically products like accident insurance, hospital indemnity, critical illness products — and they really are designed to complement the health insurance plan, not replace it. They’re quite affordable, and they’re really there to prevent emergencies from having a devastating financial impact on people’s lives.”

JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, added, “Sometimes, when people sign up for health insurance plans through an employer, they aren’t totally sure what they’re signing up for. And then, if something goes wrong and they accrue medical debt, it can be very hard to dig themselves out. That’s where Emerge comes in. This leading company helps ensure that people are covered financially in case of emergency. Their work is inspiring to say the least! We’re so excited to have Emerge on our show.”
