Top 3 Reasons MRP Applications Are Denied
The Wrong Logo
For an item to be eligible for reimbursment it must feature the Trusted Choice logo, not the IIABA association logo, which looks similar.
There needs to be a certain amount of clear space given to the Trusted Choice logo so that it is easily identified, as outlined in the style guide. Be sure that the logo is not placed against some other element.
The Wrong Color
The primary colors for the Trusted Choice logo are blue & black, though for situations where it's more appropriate or necessary for a single color there are a few acceptable single color options (blue, black, white or silver).
