What Sets MyIDCare Apart?

One of the most outstanding features of MyIDCare is the wide range of identity theft types that it protects against. These include all nine commonly known forms of identity theft including some of the lesser known/cover ones like:

  • Employment Fraud – Gaining employment by using another person’s identifying information is used to avoid taxes, pass background checks, and for insider access to a company’s assets in order to commit another crime. This can cause problems with the IRS as well as criminal problems.
  • Medical Fraud – This form of identity theft is used to receive free medical services. The problems this poses can include fees being racked up in your name and even changes in a medical record that could threaten lives. MyIDCare monitors medical records and alerts clients to any suspicious activity.
  • Insurance Fraud – By using stolen information, criminals can make fraudulent claims, benefit requests, and reimbursement claims on insurance companies which can affect deductibles, eligibility, and costs in the future. MyIDCare promises to make sure this never becomes a problem.

Another feature that makes MyIDCare stand out from their competitors is their reimbursement policy. This covers expenses up to the maximum of $1 million, which is the average for identity theft protection companies. However, unlike many other companies, MyIDCare also covers losses and expenditures that include stolen funds as well as the service fees covered by other companies.

The A+ rating MyIDCare’s parent company, IDExperts, has received from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) is also outstanding. However, the reviews and customer comments throw that grade into question. For example, out of ten customer reviews of their service, IDExperts had eight one-star reviews (the lowest possible) with the remaining two reviews garnering only three stars. This seems to contradict the high grade and call its validity into question.
