Insurance Adjuster / Payor
Insurance Adjuster/Payer User Agreement
Welcome to Trust Certified LLC (“Trust Certified,” “we” or “us“) and to the Trust Certified website and system (the “TC System,” “Site,” or “System”). Trust Certified is in the business of, among other things, helping patients, insurance adjusters, and other payors of medical services (collectively “Payors”) identify, select, and communicate with physicians and providers of healthcare. Trust Certified collects data and other information from numerous sources, including physicians and their practices, to improve healthcare by identifying and rewarding providers who are focused on the best health outcomes for their patients. We do this pursuant to the Trust Certified System.
Trust Certified member physicians (collectively, “Healthcare Providers“; also referred to as “Providers” and individually as a “Provider”) submit information to us that enables us to list those Providers for review by potential users of their services, including to parties engaged in the business of insurance, medical claims, and decisions relating to the selection of physicians (“Insurance Adjusters/Payers,” “You,” “you”), thereby allowing Insurance Adjusters/Payers to make more informed decisions regarding the appropriate Healthcare Provider for their needs.

- No Referrals or Recommendations
Trust Certified neither acts as a referral service nor recommends or endorses any particular Healthcare Provider. Rather, Trust Certified acts as an intermediary that provides selected information about Healthcare Providers. Trust Certified uses its proprietary processes and system to select, compile, train, certify, and identify various Healthcare Providers. On its Site, when requested by an Insurance Adjuster/Payer, Trust Certified may make available certain information, profiles and materials regarding Healthcare Providers (the “Site Materials“).
The Healthcare Provider information consists of identification of potential providers and not recommendations to utilize the services of any specific Healthcare Provider. You acknowledge and agree that if and when you access, browse or use any portion of the Site and the TC System, or if you use any of the Site Materials, then such access, browsing or use is subject to all terms and conditions which can be accessed at https://trustcertified.org/terms-and-conditions/.
