Regulation FD Disclosure.
Clover Health Investments, Corp. (the Company or Clover) supplements its February 5, 2021, Medium blog post (the Original Post) as follows:
As previously discussed, Mr. Bermudez maintains an ownership interest in B&H Assurance, an insurance brokerage firm that he founded with a partner in 2011 before joining Clover. As described in the Original Post, Clover directly contracts with a Field Marketing Organization (FMO) named Ritter Insurance Marketing. B&H Assurance is one of many downline agencies from Ritter, which means that B&H and its agents sell Clover plans through Ritter, as well as other non-Clover Medicare Advantage plans. We understand from Ritter that, from 2017 through 2020, B&H Assurance received from Ritter roughly $400,000 a year for Clover-related products. As noted in the Original Post, from the period 2017 to present, Clover has paid roughly $160,000 directly to B&H Assurance ($125,000 of which is an incentive payment made in 2021 for hitting a preset enrollment bonus pursuant to an incentive plan in which other agencies also participate). We understand from Mr. Bermudez that, over the last several years, he reported an average of roughly $170,000 a year in net income from B&H Assurance. The Company has concluded that the income received by Mr. Bermudez as a result of his work for Clover is compliant with applicable CMS rules and regulations. Based on discussions with the Company, Mr. Bermudez has agreed to divest himself from all interests in B&H Assurance to avoid any potential conflict of interest.
The information furnished in this report shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
