For the past several months, we have been working on a health quote engine. This quote engine is designed to give individuals and their families a quote for specific health insurance products. At Ritter Insurance Marketing, we imagine a future where you do not have to go through the arduous task of entering your entire family's information into an application just to receive a quote. The information to get a quote normally is very simple:
- Location via Zip Code and County
- Family members
- Smoking status
That is information that can primarily be gleaned fairly accurately from a photograph. Utilizing Microsoft's Oxford API we built Selfie Quote.
There are three steps, all done for you with minimal input.
2. Pick a County (if applicable)
3. Upload a Family Photo
Note: The site can utilize your phone's camera to upload a photo. Hence the selfie part of selfie quote.
Finally, sit back and see your results.
Give it a try with your family photo at http://selfiequote.com. If you don't have a family, you can use this Google Search. Just understand that this site is purely for educational purposes and a proof of concept. If you do need health insurance I recommend contacting Ritter Insurance Marketing and they can help find you a contracted and licensed agent in your area.
As a nice technical side note, this site utilizes ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6 and it seems to be holding up nicely.
Special thanks to the RIMdev team and special thanks to Bill Boga and Kevin Hougasian for pulling Selfie Quote together.
