Should COVID-19 Claims Be Paid By Insurance?

There is no doubt about the major impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on every aspect of our lives. 

And there is still no vaccine for our insurance lives either.  From hearing about what is covered.  What’s not covered?

What should be covered?

This last one has popped up more frequently.  Because of proposed legislation at both the state and federal level.

We’ve seen similar instances relating to weather-related catastrophic events.  But should it have happened then?  Should it happen now?

We need to understand the full impact, before these major decisions can be made.

Coronavirus Got Me!

Do you think the media is overreacting and blowing this out of proportion?

Do you think we’re not taking this serious enough?

It really doesn’t matter which side you’re on, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting us.

Up until last week I would say I was in the camp of thinking we’re all overreacting.  Especially after reading an article clarifying fatality and infection rates.

But then PLRB was cancelled.  I had to rearrange my travel schedule and plans.  Even more so, think of what the conference organizers have to go through.

Sure this was the first insurance conference that was a victim of coronavirus.  But I don’t think it will be the last.
