We’ve improved our download all documents feature so customers downloading a large amount of documents at once can do so quickly and easily.

✅Break your claim down into sections

It’s cleaner and simpler to use so you can navigate each step with ease.

👉We made it simpler to downgrade from Plus to Standard

You can now seamlessly downgrade from Plus to Standard. Simply log in, navigate to > Settings > Memberships > click ‘subscribe’ in the Standard Card. Enter your details, hit ‘subscribe’ and your plan will automatically downgrade. Done.

You can upgrade to Plus again any time you want to. Just follow the same procedure except subscribe to Plus instead of Standard.
