MSIC's Non-invasive Policy Helps Get its 25,000th Customer

January 22, 2013

Although Medicare does cover what is defined as ‘core benefits’ of healthcare, there are certain costs that have to be borne by the owner if they don’t have a supplemental insurance plan in place. That’s why it’s essential to find the correct plan. This is easier said than done as searching for the right one can be very challenging.

Researching on the Internet is the easiest way to compare the available options but to even do that, users had to part with sensitive personal information, but not anymore, thanks to Steven Pewter, creator of the Medicare supplemental insurance comparison (MSIC) website, which recently achieved a milestone of sorts by assisting its 25,000th customer.

“Hitting the 25,000th visitor helped is indeed a fine achievement,” said David Bartholomew, director of marketing.

Bartholomew also noted that the moment personal information was required, users clicked away from the website, but with MSIC’s non-invasive policy, people could search the site and get competing price quotes anonymously, putting them in the drivers’ seat while negotiating with companies.

Created in September of 2012, the website utilizes the absolute latest in price quote technology to help users get the best rates for Medicare supplemental insurance.

MSIC understands the need for privacy while searching for options, and is one of the first comparison websites of its kind to give insurance quotes while only requiring a zip code. No one likes an invasion on one’s privacy while doing research online, a sentiment that Medicare supplemental insurance comparison echoed.

 “I’m a senior citizen myself and I wanted to create something that anyone could be comfortable using. The majority of our clients just aren’t OK with giving personal information up front. Our goal was to allow people to search for supplemental insurance anonymously, and I think our success with that has made us so popular,” observed Pewter.

Recently MSIC announced that it has added 250,000 companies to its database, all of them vetted according to reputation and years in business.
