Startup SURE says it has partnered with underwriter Chubb to launch a new service that allows Uber and Lyft ride-hailing passengers to buy accidental medical, death and dismemberment insurance coverage for the ride. The program, called RideSafe, works by connecting a customer's Uber or Lyft account to their SURE Insurance app, and once coverage is initially authorized, the passenger's ride is automatically insured.
