"To provide an environment that brings out the best in our people and both empowers and supports them to build the life and the career that is most important to them."
Altitude was founded on July 1, 2013 as an independent sales company. We specialize in building strong salespeople and outside sales teams to market some of the best products in the insurance industry, and we've experienced phenomenal double-digit new sales growth almost every year since our inception: 42% in 2013, 83% in 2014, 10% in 2015, 48% in 2016, 12% in 2017, 22% in 2018, 14% in 2019, 9% in 2020, 19% in 2021, and a whopping 31% in 2022.
Andrew Santos, our president, began his career as a sales agent in 2005 and through a combination of hard work, determination, perseverance, and vision, he opened his own agency in 2013.
Our agents work and live in approximately 20 different states all across the country, and our headquarters is located in Nashville, Tennessee.

"Why would I need supplemental insurance? I already have great health insurance through my job."
Most people don't think about what would happen to their finances if a spouse, parent, or child suddenly fell ill or was seriously injured. (Because really, who wants to think about things like that happening to their loved ones?)
But stop and think about it for a moment: what would happen if any member of your household were diagnosed with cancer, or suffered a heart attack or a serious accident and had to be hospitalized for days, weeks, or months? How many extra bills would pile up that you would struggle to pay? What if your family relies on two incomes and one of those incomes was gone because that person was too sick to work? What if you or another income earner had to quit working to take care of a sick child, partner, or parent? Worse yet, what if you are a one-income household and the primary breadwinner is unable to work?
How long would it take before your money ran out?
WE PROVIDE PEACE OF MIND WHEN YOU NEED IT THE MOST.
Enter Altitude. The plans that we offer will provide you with financial peace of mind for the "what ifs" in life because there will always be a need for extra protection when the unexpected happens.
While primary health insurance policies pay your benefits out to doctors and hospitals, our policies pay claim funds out to you and your family directly. Your benefits are paid in addition to all other insurance you may or may not own, and our policies have no lifetime limits.
Because funds are paid directly to you, you can use the money however you see fit, whether it's managing high deductibles, paying for uncovered medical expenses, or replacing income lost from time off work. In addition, your supplemental policies go wherever you do, even if you change jobs or relocate.
The best part? All of our policies offer a "Return of Premium" feature - meaning that if you keep your policy for the entire term, all of your premiums are returned to you at the end of that policy term, less any claims paid. This makes our products an absolute win-win for our clients. If something happens to you or a covered family member and you need to make a claim, we're there to give you money to help with your expenses; if you never have to make a claim, we're there at the end of your policy term to give you your money back! This unique policy feature really sets us above the competition in a big way.
Could have never done it without you. I would never [have] thought my daughter would need it before me. It was more than a blessing to have."
