This privacy statement covers the site www.medplanaccess.com, which you are now visiting. Because this web site wants to demonstrate its commitment to your privacy, it has agreed to disclose its information practices.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, contact Joe Risse of MedPlan Access.
MedPlan Access is committed to protecting your privacy. In providing services as a state-licensed insurance agent to consumers in Illinois and in Indiana, we ask you to provide us with personal information. We only use this personal information so we can provide our services to you.
This site provides, for your convenience and information, links to additional sites that may assist in your evaluation of health insurance products. MedPlan Access does not maintain any contractual relationship with these organizations and bears no responsibility for the content and information privacy practices of these websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of these linked web sites as their information privacy practices may differ from ours.
MedPlan Access endeavors to collect only the minimal personally identifiable information required to do our job for you. If you would prefer that we not use certain personally identifiable information, we will honor your request. However, this may mean we cannot deliver the service you have requested, such as providing an accurate health insurance quote or submitting a health insurance application.
In your interactions with our contracted partners, such as the health insurance companies we represent, we will assist in communicating your information use preferences to the organization at issue. However, these companies are bound by their own privacy practice statements.
If you have preferences about how your personally identifiable information is to be used, you can contact us via email, phone, fax or postal mail.
We may use your personal information to contact you when providing our services. For example, during the application process we may email you to inform you of application status or to obtain additional information needed to continue processing of the application.
We are sensitive to the scourge of email spam junk mail and telemarketing, and we limit our communications to what is necessary to provide our services. We do not market our products through email, phone or postal mail.
If you wish to opt out of our communications with you, we will honor your request, though this may leave us unable to provide the health insurance services you want. You can make your preferences known to us via email, phone, fax or postal mail (See complete contact information below.).
If you are dealing with one of our contracted partners and you desire to limit or opt out of their communications with you, we will assist in making them aware of your preferences. However, these organizations operate under their own privacy practices.
We maintain appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information contained in our records.
We limit access to your personal information to MedPlan Access staff members who need to know this information in order to provide our services to you.
In the unlikely event we may be considering use of your personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you. Your approval would be required before we would use your personal information in this different way.
Any time you enter or provide personal information on our website, we encrypt it using Secure Layer ("SSL") technology. SSL protects information communicated between your computer and this website. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser, which would include popular browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.01 or higher, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Safari. These browsers will automatically activate SSL when you visit a medplanaccess.com page containing a form requiring any information input.
You can identify secure areas within a website by the lock or key symbol appearing at the bottom of your browser window. Your browser address bar will also show an address beginning with "https," whereas the address on a non-secure web page typically begins with "http."
We regularly evaluate our privacy practices and we always strive to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. If you need to correct or update your information or you have any questions or instructions regarding our handling of your personal information, we encourage you to contact us at:
6 Grapevine Place
P.O. Box 2220
West Lafayette IN 47906
Please note that after your application has been submitted to a health insurance company, you may contact the insurance company directly to update or correct the information on your application.
