Welcome to the Market Access Program!

 

 The PIA Market Access Program provides PIA member agents with prompt and easy access to preferred commercial & personal lines “A” rated (or better) admitted carriers.  The Market Access program offers excellent pricing and competitive commissions. There is no minimum written premium requirement.

 

How to Place Business in Market Access Program:
In order to place business in the PIA Market Access program you must first be a member.  If you are not a member and wish to join please click here. 
 

The PIA Market Access program offers you two business submission choices.  You can choose either the “Point and Click Submission System” or the “PIA Multi-Rater.”

 

Point & Click System
The “point and click” submission system is a simple and easy “point and click tool” designed to give the PIA Member user an online submission underwriting tool on their desk top.  At the click of the mouse the Market Access program lets you research, submit, and write your business - all online.   Incomplete applications will be returned.   Click here for sample forms

 

How the Point and Click System Works:
Unlike the multi rater, there is no fee for this program.  When you are ready to quote business using this system simply do the following:
  • Click here to have the desktop PIA Market Access Program ICON emailed to you.
  • Once you get the PIA Market Access Program ICON
  • Click on the PIA Market Access Program Icon which will take you directly to the PIA Market Access program
  • Review company appetite lists by clicking on a company logo.  If eligible…
  • Click on and complete the Acord Application
  • Hit submit. 
 

The point and click system is not a real-time multi rater.  You will receive personal lines and small business BOP quotes within 24 to 72 business hours depending upon the risk and company to which it has been submitted.  Quote time may be longer in some cases due to the risk exposures.  You will get a response from one of our experienced underwriting and customer service team. 

 

PIA Multi-Rater
While no longer mandatory, PIA will still be offering its members access to a commercial and personal lines multi rater.  If you’re a current user or a new customer, you can choose to use the multi rater for the following monthly fee: Personal lines $35.00 Commercial lines $35.00 or PL/CL combination $65.00.   If you’re currently using the multi rater, PIA recommends that before you make any decisions relative to discontinuing the multi rater, you first try the point and click submission system. 

 
The multi rater is a powerful tool and will deliver you real time quotes. If you are a first time user and contemplating using the multi rater, please keep in mind that like all technology, you must first learn the system in order to use it to its fullest capacity.  The PIA hosts training webinars each month.  Please contact Lisa to schedule your training (888-246-4466 x112).

If You Decide To Switch - We Need Hear From You!
Should you decide to discontinue the multi rater then we need you to contact us.  The PIA does not keep its members credit cards on file so if you are a current multi rater user and choose to discontinue using the multi rater, we will need to process your credit card in order to remove the monthly user fee.  Please contact Kelli at 888-246-4466 x123.
