Insurtech startup Hippo Insurance recently announced it has expanded its claims partnerships with Handdii and Westhill. Hippo claimed that the partnerships will allow it to match claimants with top tier contractors to deliver the comfort and satisfaction of high-quality work, real-time updates and a faster reconstruction timeline. The partnerships will also allow Hippo’s customers with insurance claims to be connected directly with a pre-vetted contractor or service professional to manage their repairs and reconstruction.
While sharing more details about the partnership, Daniel Blanaru, VP of Growth Initiatives, Hippo, stated:
“We’re taking a bigger role in providing a resource and solution for all things within the home, so that our clients can feel reassured that Hippo will handle the tough stuff for them. Handdii and Westhill are two partners we brought on who are pioneering the space and helping create a renewed claims experience for Hippo clients.”
Christie Downs, Co-founder and CEO of Handdii, then added:
“The claims process for insurance companies has been a complicated and complex process left in the hands of policyholders to navigate. We’re proud of the positive achievements our partnership has provided to Hippo clients to close out claims with more convenience and comfort than ever before.”
Founded in 2015, Hippo describes itself as a home insurance company that’s changing the way people safeguard their most important asset.
“We’ve reimagined the traditional homeowners insurance policy, removed things that didn’t make sense, updated the necessities and increased coverage for contemporary needs, things like smartphones, electronics and home office equipment.”
