Health insurance sales hit the mall -- and Web

USA Today, September 13, 2013
Theresa Pugh stopped at a store near Lord & Taylor after eating at the restaurant a few doors down. She picked herself up a supplemental Medicare plan from the Horizon Connect store. "There's so much going on with health care in our country right now, I needed to go with someone that I trusted," says Pugh, of Mount Laurel, N.J. "I just felt like I wasn't being sold a bill of goods." Call it the retailization of health insurance. Shopping center owners may not be courting them as they would Apple or trendy fashion brands, but health insurers are increasingly opening stores alongside far sexier retail tenants.
