The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center is predicting another above-normal Atlantic hurricane season for 2021. Forecasters predict a 60% chance of an above-normal season, a 30% chance of a near-normal season, and a 10% chance of a below-normal season. However, experts do not anticipate the historic level of storm activity seen in 2020.

You’ll find some great information on preparing for this year’s hurricane season from the  National Weather Service, as well as from our own TriSure Hurricane Preparedness Center.

And in the event of a storm, TriSure will be ready to assist you. Our staff will help you get your claim reported promptly and handled as quickly as possible. And while you can always call us at 919-469-2473 to get your claim in process, here is a list of numbers for our insurance partners should you prefer.

TriSure, An Alera Group Company, Employees Relieve $1,100,000 Dollars of Medical Debt Relief in North Carolina This Christmas

Raleigh, NC (Jan. 4, 2021) – TriSure, part of the Alera Group, Inc., (“Alera”) employees today announced their alleviation of a $1,100,000 in medical debt for struggling households in North Carolina. This gift is part of more than $18 million in healthcare debt being relieved by Alera Group employees for struggling households across the country. Alera is one of the youngest and fastest growing privately-held, national insurance brokerage firms in the country.

Alera employees worked directly with the debt-forgiveness nonprofit, RIP Medical Debt, to identify individuals and families with outstanding healthcare-related bills in more than 200 cities located in 35 counties across the country. Founded by two former debt collectors, RIP is able to purchase medical debts for those most in need in bundled portfolios for a fraction of their face value. One dollar donated relieves $100 of medical debt on average.

“As we celebrated the Christmas holiday, this gift comes straight from the heart of our Alera employees. Stationed across the country, our teams are passionate about giving back directly to the communities in which they live, work and play,” said John Cramer, Managing Partner of TriSure/Alera, which is based In Raleigh, North Carolina. “Medical debt is mounting more than ever and many families right in our backyard are in crisis. Buying and retiring medical debt allows our employees to truly give back and alleviate a worry for many this holiday season.”

Rather than waking up to the knocking of a debt collector, thousands of Americans will receive letters of forgiveness to alert them of the gift from Alera employees. These letters will be delivered throughout the winter targeting individual and families living below 200 percent of the poverty level.
