Identity Protection a Natural Complement to Insurance Offerings Currently on PolicyGenius Digital Insurance Platform


PORTLAND, Ore. and New York, NY — October 16, 2017 —
PolicyGenius, a fast-growing consumer insurance startup that makes it easy for consumers to shop for health, life, long-term disability, renters and pet insurance, now offers MyIDCareTM identity protection services from ID Experts, the largest provider of identity protection to the federal government.

“Identity theft has reached epidemic proportions in the U.S., leading to the defrauding of 15.4 million individuals last year,” said Jennifer Fitzgerald, PolicyGenius CEO. “We’ve chosen to add MyIDCare from ID Experts to our digital insurance marketplace to help our policyholders protect themselves from this significant personal risk.”

In today’s environment, it’s safe to assume that at least some of your personal data is compromised. Identity protection services shield individuals and their families from the damage that results from identity theft and fraud. This is accomplished through the early detection of fraud, by offering easy and open access to human resources that are highly trained in remedying identity fraud, and by guaranteeing a financial backstop with identity theft insurance.

ID Experts is the largest provider of identity protection products and data breach services to both the federal government and U.S. healthcare industry, covering more than 25 million individuals. The MyIDCare identity protection service includes alert-based identity monitoring, concierge-style identity recovery services, and $1 million identity theft reimbursement insurance and lost funds reimbursement. An easy-to-use web app gives prompt access to alerts and a direct connection to the ID Care Team for unlimited questions and help with identity theft concerns.

“With MyIDCare, we cover all nine types of identity theft by proactively monitoring, constantly alerting you of any suspicious activity, and providing industry-best, concierge-style identity recovery services,” said Doug Pollack, ID Experts’ chief marketing officer. “We are excited to partner with PolicyGenius, which is truly revolutionizing the way people find and purchase insurance.”
