Warner Pacific to Purchase CIMS

Warner Pacific Insurance Services, a general agency for many of the nations largest health insurance carriers, has entered into an agreement to acquire select Comprehensive Integrated Marketing Services (CIMS) non-WellPoint carrier contracts. CIMS is a full service general agency and a wholly owned subsidiary of WellPoint Inc.

CIMS is headquartered in San Bernardino, CA and serves agents throughout the state, representing several top ranked medical carriers.

This acquisition strategically aligns with the overall vision and long term goals of Warner Pacific, said John Nelson, Co-CEO of Warner Pacific. It allows Warner Pacific to significantly enhance and expand our accessibility and service capabilities and bring more value to brokers.

For the past 25 years CIMS has provided support and resources that enabled brokers to successfully grow and retain their business. The combination of Warner Pacific and these select CIMS non-WellPoint carrier contracts will reportedly help to enhance Warner Pacifics reputation in the industry as a leader in technology and personalized service.

Warner Pacific is working closely with CIMS to ensure that the integration of these carrier contracts supports the companies commitment to providing brokers the tools they need to succeed.

This agreement follows a merger less than a month ago when Warner Pacific acquired Price Associates located in Fresno, CA, which serves brokers throughout Central California and along the Coast.
