Edit: To address some comments, the entire site is in HTTPS, check your browser. NONE of your information is sent in plain text. The only identifying information other than your health insurance card you need to give is a zip code and DOB. .IO is a domain that tech companies like because I/O can mean input/output so tech guys like it. I added some $50 in payments I received from referrals yesterday.
If you have health insurance (not through an employer, Medicare, or Medicaid), Impact Health will give you $25 via Paypal, Venmo, or Amazon (your choice) for completing a 10 minute survey about health insurance. They request that you upload or text a photo of your health insurance card in order to validate your health insurance plan. After you complete the survey, you also have the option to join their referral program. They will give you an additional $25 for every qualified referral who completes the study. Those without insurance or those that have insurance through an employer can still participate in their referral program.
Did you just buy health insurance through Healthcare.gov or directly through a health plan? If so, we would love to have you participate in our 15 minute online research questionnaire. This research study will help us advocate for consumers like you, as we work with health plans across the U.S. and the government to implement cost efficient plans that you can actually use.
ABOUT THE RESEARCH STUDY We're looking for individuals who have purchased health insurance for 2017 during open enrollment within the last 4 weeks. You may also qualify if you have valid health insurance and are shopping for a new plan. Here's what you need to qualify for the research study: ----> You bought insurance through your state exchange, Healthcare.gov, through a broker, or directly through a health plan like Oscar, Kaiser, Blue Cross, etc. ----> You don't receive your health insurance through an employer. ----> You currently have this health insurance active. ----> You are not on Medicaid, Medicare or VA health insurance. If this is you - we'd love to get your opinion! We will compensate qualified participants $25 cash through your preferred payment method (PayPal, Amazon gift card or VenMo). Please be advised that you will need to verify that you meet the qualifications above to be a part of our research study.WHO WE ARE Impact Health is a national organization with a mission to make health insurance simple and transparent.

Isn't this true of any survey that asks you for information? The company is providing Health Insurance Concierge service so they want to know peoples opinions so they can improve. Its basically market research. The entire survey is in HTTPS, there is nothing that is sent in plain text.
NativeAtlantaGirl said: midnightt said: Just upload your health insurance ID card, how could that be bad? This and probably the other information that they ask for will give an identity crook a good start.
I gave incorrect information for my DOB, and covered up my ID number (used an old policy card). Other than that, no specific information other than zip code.
You have to validate that your health insurance is current, I don't think this will work.
lol, .IO is for any tech company, you guys have no idea what you are talking about. Tech companies like .IO because I/O means input/output. Its the same as the .TO domain. Its a country domain but its nice for websites like jump.to for URL forwarding etc.
