Columbus auto insurer Root continues to expand its reach across the country.

The young auto insurer led by CEO Alex Timm says it is now licensed to sell auto insurance in 48 states and the District of Columbia, according to its quarterly report issued Wednesday. It is working to get licenses for the remaining two states, Florida and Massachusetts.

Root said it is now preparing pricing models in several of those states.

The company saw record premiums written in the quarter, topping $200 million in the first three months of 2021 and up 23{98cae0078f524eff3ab8ec32cf55b261677ef6c8a6ed6e94d92a4234b93f46b6} from the same period in 2020. That is the company’s preferred metric for judging its performance.

The number of auto policies in force grew to 360,290 in the quarter, an increase of nearly 8{98cae0078f524eff3ab8ec32cf55b261677ef6c8a6ed6e94d92a4234b93f46b6}. It has 8,835 renters policies in force, double from the same period in 2020.
