SECURE STORAGE FOR INSURANCE
RECORDS AND ADMINISTRATIVE FILES
Between applications, claims and administrative documents, insurance agencies generate an incredible amount of paperwork on a daily basis.
And, given the sensitive nature of the information contained within these records, providers must remain compliant with various retention regulations that define how long they must be maintained. Unfortunately, the necessary retention of such staggering quantities can leave many insurance companies with too many filing cabinets and too little office space.
At Access, our PRISM Privacy+ Certified record centers can help you remain compliant while eliminating the costs and space deficiencies of on-site storage. The record centers are built with a variety of state-of-the-art features, including:

COMPLIANCE WITH INSURANCE REGULATIONS
Forward-thinking insurance providers need to create centralized physical and digital asset management programs that are compliant with existing rules and regulations, as well as flexible and scalable enough to account for new or expanding requirements. At Access, we will help you create that program, ensuring that it:

COMPLIANT DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION PROGRAMS
Whether dealing in property, medical or life insurance, providers handle a great deal of personally identifiable information (PII), PHI and financial information. Once these sensitive records exceed their retention requirements, they need to be disposed of properly, to avoid fees, penalties, security breaches and the loss of customer confidence.
At Access, we have earned industry experience working with multinational and local insurance organizations to design comprehensive and customized document destruction programs. These compliant shredding programs ensure records are securely destroyed and recycled at the end of their life cycles, mitigating the above risks, reducing costs and saving valuable storage space.
In addition, by maintaining shredding facilities with NAID AAA and PCI DSS compliant certifications, we can:
Accommodate mobile and plant-based destructions at many locations.
Guarantee compliance with relevant state and federal laws and regulations.
Provide scalable and flexible shredding options.
Handle the destruction of computer equipment, microfilm and many other mediaforms.
Choose between our ongoing or on-demand shredding solutions, or take advantage of both options to fulfill your unique needs. After the services are complete, you will receive Proof of Service, a Certificate of Destruction and all other applicable paperwork, to ensure your business records are complete and that you remain compliant with all legal requirements.
