Embark Launches New Car Insurance Product Tailored to Florida’s Underserved Drivers
Embark was founded in 2018 to develop and manage custom insurance programs in partnership with leading insurance companies, most often for niche or underserved segments. Its non-standard auto program is designed to provide mandatory insurance protection for those who have difficulty finding insurance, such as people with foreign driver’s licenses or those with imperfect payment histories. Embark offers 24/7 online access to police documents and billing, as well as trilingual phone service for its Hispanic and Portuguese customers.
The availability of insurance coverage is a major public issue in Florida. A 2021 study by the Insurance Research Council found that more than 20% of Florida drivers are uninsured, the sixth highest rate of uninsured drivers in the country. Florida has over 15 million licensed drivers, which means over 3 million people are driving without car insurance. According to the Federation of Personal Insurance Floridaan insurance industry advocacy group, the high percentage of uninsured drivers in Florida is caused by high insurance premiums.
Besides, Florida has one of the largest populations of “non-standard” drivers in the United States at 12.5%, after CA (22.5%) and Texas (16.9%) based on AM Best insurance premium data. Non-standard is a classification that insurance companies use to describe drivers whose risk factors make it difficult or impossible to obtain insurance at standard or preferential rates. Embark and its insurance partners bring long-term perspective, insurance expertise and rigor to finding ways to bring affordable insurance to the non-standard automotive segment.
Earlier this year, also as part of its partnership with Incline P&C Group, Embark introduced its non-standard auto insurance product to California, continuing its mission to bring affordable insurance to drivers who need it most. Embark now serves 60% of the US non-standard market, including Florida, California, Texas, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Georgiaand Alabama, and plans to continue expanding its availability in other states. Embark is available through a network of licensed independent insurance agents. Insurance agencies interested in dating opportunities may request information on embarkmga.com.
