Clearinghouse: Citizens Introduces New Solution for Verifying Eligibility

Citizens has selected Applied Systems’ EZLynx® Rating Engine as the new solution for the clearinghouse program which helps validate price eligibility before applying for or renewing a policy with Citizens.

EZLynx Rating Engine will provide Citizens-appointed agents with an easy-to-use comparative rater that delivers real-time homeowners quotes from participating carriers that you are appointed with.

Beginning mid-June, agents and credentialed agency staff will use EZLynx Rating Engine as part of the standard rate, quote, and bind process for the following policy types:

  • Citizens Homeowners 3 – Special Form (CIT HO-3)
  • Citizens Homeowners 6 – Unit-Owners Form (CIT HO-6)
  • Dwelling Property 1 – Basic Form (CIT DP-1-D)
  • Dwelling Property 3 – Special Form (CIT DP-3-D)

Agents who are not currently subscribed to EZLynx will be provided a no-cost limited access EZLynx account. If you are a current EZLynx subscriber, Citizens rates will be provided on your current platform. EZLynx must be used to determine eligibility for the Citizens policy forms listed above. Proof of eligibility for all policy forms not listed above will still fall under the current eligibility requirements outside of EZLynx.

For agencies that are not currently subscribed to EZLynx, Applied Systems will offer the option to upgrade their limited access EZLynx account to a complete EZLynx account to expand their access to rate auto or add agency management system access.

Look for additional communications soon to announce training opportunities for agents to use the EZLynx Rating Engine and details about credentials for Citizens-appointed agents and credentialed agency staff.
