INSHUR to make benefits more accessible to taxi drivers through collaboration

INSHUR, a provider of commercial auto insurance to Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) and rideshare drivers in New York, has announced a partnership with Drivers Benefits, The Black Car Fund, and the Independent Drivers Guild.

Through the collaboration, Black Car Services drivers in NY can sign up for a Drivers Benefits program whenever they purchase or renew their policy with INSHUR on their smartphones.

Drivers Benefits is an initiative run by IDG Benefits Fund. The program is funded by a 2.5% surcharge on all rider fees paid to The Black Car Fund, which pays for benefits such as annual eye exams, access to telemedicine, and safety and wellness classes.

Participants in the initiative also enjoy discounts on prescriptions, legal assistance, accident support, dental discounts and more through deals with the Independent Drivers Guilds.

“Our mission is to change the way drivers feel about insurance and so being able to offer access to Drivers Benefits to our customers was really important to us. With only 21,000 NYC rideshare drivers currently taking advantage of Drivers Benefits, we’re excited to be able to help thousands more access them quickly and easily through this partnership,” said INSHUR CEO Dan Bratshpis.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for drivers to access their benefits. Adding enrollment to Drivers Benefits to the INSHUR platform will make it easy for drivers to get the benefits they deserve,” added IDG Benefits Fund executive director Andrew Greenblatt.
