Insurance Companies Set To Pay Out More Frequently

by newstrategy
dngdhxNorwich Union has announced that it has already changed its policy on insurance claims after the guidelines published recently by the industry’s umbrella body. The numerous refusals from insurers to pay out on policies after it came to light that customers had not provided all of the required details when they set up the policy. Until now if someone had forgotten to include a fact on an insurance application would run the risk of being refused a future critical illness, income protection or life insurance payout, this would remain the case even if the missing details had nothing to do with the claim in question. In what the Association of British Insurers (ABI) has termed a “pioneering” commitment, it has pledged that its members will pay out more claims, even if some medical information has not been included in the original policy, unless that information has been deliberately withheld. According to the ABI, insurers will pay out “a fair sum, reflecting risk and premiums paid.” In the case that the insurer has taken on a policy unaware of all the necessary facts, the premium would be refunded. Stephen Haddrill, ABI director said: “Customers want to know that their insurance claim will always be assessed fairly and paid without fuss. The industry wants more customers to be able to take out insurance with confidence. Insurers have signed up to ensuring both of these happen.
The number of protection claims that are down will fall.” Norwich Union conducted a study during which they asked 5000 of their insurance customers to review the original policy application document and inform the insurer of an inaccuracies. The intention of the trial was to amend any mistakes which could potentially invalidate any future claims. 236b customers added further information to their policy, 33 of which were significant with the potential to affect underwriting decisions. Norwich Union’s director of protection, Willie Mowatt, said: “We have been heavily involved with creating these new ABI guidelines and we wholeheartedly support any such initiative which can provide fairer treatment to all of our customers. “Non-disclosure has been an industry-wide problem for some time now, so the latest ABI guidelines are a great step forward to help tackle the issue.

The Price To Pay For Not Having Health Insurance In Texas

by newstrategy
yfmfmtuygtmThere are many people that work in the state of Texas that are having difficulty getting health insurance. One reason they cannot get health insurance in Texas is because they feel they cannot afford it. Since they don’t have high salaries, they feel it’s impossible to make ends meet if they get it and can’t pay for the household essentials. There are many people that are in the ranks of the uninsured in the state of Texas. Having health insurance in Texas should be a high priority to those that can make a change and do something about it. What makes this terribly disturbing is that there are some companies (smaller ones that do not or don’t want to offer health insurance to their employees. They are afraid that offering coverage to their employees would eat out of their bottom line—profits for the company. Those Texans that are uninsured tend to have a lower quality of life. Not having health insurance in Texas can tend to make people not take care of themselves like they should. If they were able to get health insurance and go to the doctor, they would be able to get quality care.
Even with the clinics that offer free or reduced cost health care, they seem to be bombarded with people trying to get it. The drawback with that is you usually have to wait hours before you see someone. Money still talks when it comes to getting health care. So out of frustration, some people don’t get health care at all. Some people may not realize that free health care is paid for by the taxpayers. They pay out massive amounts each year to take care of those that don’t have health insurance in Texas. So it’s up to everyone else that pays taxes to pay for the indigent care of others. Some taxpayers don’t really care for that. They get incensed because they have to pay health care for other people that they don’t know. They also get incensed because their health care premiums go up as a result of it. They just don’t feel it’s right to pass it on to the taxpayers. Besides, they are the ones that work hard five to seven days a week, slaving and enduring office politics. They feel that they should not have to be the pawns for taking their hard-earned money and giving it away to pay for others, since they don’t have health insurance in Texas.
