Domestic Violence Confidentiality

Procedure to make a request for confidentiality

We take the protection of your personal information seriously. If you are a victim of domestic violence or other abuse, you can request we send claim-related or policy information to you by alternative means, at alternative locations. Contact us at 866-COUNTRY (866-268-6879) for information on how to provide us with an alternative address, telephone number, or other method of contact. While we understand the urgency of these requests, they will take up to three business days to process.

Procedure to cancel a request

If you previously submitted a request for confidentiality that you want to cancel, please contact us at 866-COUNTRY (866-268-6879).

Additional information for residents of New York State

Under New York Insurance Law § 2612, when an insurance company receives a valid order of protection from an insured person who resides in the state of New York, the insurance company must not disclose to the policyholder, or other persons covered by the policy, the address and telephone number of the insured, or any person or entity providing covered services to the insured, for the duration of the order. For any child subject to an order of protection, the child’s parent or guardian may submit a request for confidentiality on the child’s behalf.

Under Illinois Insurance Law 215 ILCS 5/355b, any company that issues, delivers, amends, or renews an individual or group policy of accident and health insurance shall accommodate a reasonable request by an insured person on the policy to receive communications of claim-related information from the company by alternative means, at alternative locations, if the person clearly states disclosure of all or part of the information could endanger them. If a child is a covered person, then the right established by this section may be asserted by the child’s parent or guardian.
