HighBridge Premium expects to add several more products in 2024. The company’s products are currently available in Arizona, Florida, Minnesota, Tennessee, and Texas, with 10 additional states to follow in 2024.

The HighBridge dedication to quality, community and growth actually made the process enjoyable.”
