InsurTech pioneer PassportCard awarded US patent in recognition of its revolutionary technology
Trend

Travel and health insurTech leader, PassportCard has been granted a US patent for its real-time claims payout through a debit card which gives customers access to a global and 100% cashless insurance service.
The patented technology, driven by AI, predictive analytics and a vast medical services database allows customers to facilitate automated, instant processing of insurance claims -without having to pay with their own funds and waiting for the claim to be validated and reimbursed.
The system pre-emptively processes a claim, activating the dedicated debit card issued to the customer when they purchased the policy. Following treatment, the customer pays with their card or digital wallet, without having to deal with the usual pain points of paperwork, processes and personal expenses.
PassportCard is the only company in the world to offer real-time payment via a rechargeable debit card, in the event of any insurance related scenario. This includes payment to medical services, medication and/or compensation in the case of baggage loss, delays and other emergency situations.
Since entering the market, PassportCard has steadily become a frontrunner in key travel insurance markets across Europe and the Pacific. With this new patent-which will provide IP protection and additional growth potential in North America, one of the key insurance markets in the world–the business has set its sights on further global expansion, to bring superior cross-border insurance services to more locations and customers than ever.
Partnership discussions are also underway, in multiple geographies, to allow other organizations to benefit from this revolution in customer experience and business results, via potential licensing and white-labelling agreements.
PassportCard Group president, Alon Ketzef, said of the news:
“It is an honour to have received this recognition for PassportCard’s innovative technology in the US.
“Continuous innovation to eliminate the inherent friction in insurance has always been our main focus; we will always seek to meet customers via their preferred channels. Whilst our end-to-end digital solution is important, it’s equally paramount that the personalised, 24/7 customer support we provide fully aligns with our tech advancements– perfect combination that delivers PassportCard’s unique and unparalleled customer experience.
With our technology being recognized to be unique, and other pending patents for additional innovation in customer experience, we feel in a stronger position than ever stronger than ever to expand into additional territories.
We look forward to this next exciting step in our mission to bring seamless and fuss-free insurance to the masses.”
