Are We Legit?
In a word, yes.
First, we'd like to say that as a team, we understand that the information we may collect is private and sensitive. We feel the exact same way about our information and we only collect what's necessary to give you accurate advice and obtain insurance coverage for you.
So why should you trust us?
Great question, and as a responsible consumer it's one you should be asking! Here are just a few ways you can tell we're a legitimate business:
We're ‘A’ rated by the Better Business Bureau.
You've probably heard of these guys, but if not, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a non-profit organization focused on advancing marketplace trust. They are mainly known for the ratings they give businesses based upon a range of trust factors including transparency, number of complaints, and time in business. We're proud of our ‘A‘ rating.
We're a licensed insurance broker in all 50 states and DC.
Yes! We are real, licensed insurance agents. That means we are legally certified to give advice and sell insurance.
We're HIPAA compliant and follow digital security best practices.
PolicyGenius is committed to providing the highest level of privacy and security for the health data of the individuals who trust us.
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a federal law that mandates industry-wide standards for protecting and confidentially handling sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.
We've partnered with Aptible to ensure that our hosting environment exceeds industry standards for security and compliance, and that our processes and procedures are audited regularly by industry-leading HIPAA experts.
