More about Covered:

Covered is innovating the way people shop for insurance. Gone are the days of insurance agents selling you confusing products. It is Covered’s goal to make insurance easy to understand and easy to purchase. We’re an independent agency - meaning we work with the largest carriers, like Progressive, Travelers, Safeco, Farmers, etc, and can directly sell their policies. We don’t sell leads. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and strive to provide a best-in-class user experience. If someone wants to talk to a real human, our highly trained licensed insurance agents help consumers make the best choice for their specific needs.
