Question: What are the guidelines for privacy when applying? Is information submitted for application of Insurance protected?
Answer: Rest assured, the personal information you enter on an online health insurance application is secure. When you enter your information and press the Submit button, your browser first will communicate with the health insurance carriers' server to establish a secured, encrypted connection. This is sometimes referred to as a "handshake." Once this connection is established, the data is then sent via secure means to the carriers' web server. We use 128-bit encryption, the highest encryption available to most browsers, with a public key length of 1,024 bits. This provides the necessary security and privacy our customers expect.
