Corporate discounts in insurance require an art of negotiation
Cheap health cover can be found with a set of conditions depending on the insurers commercial strategy. As there are no degrees in insurance for accountants or finance professionals, only few insurance brokers understand what is negotiable or not; and with whom. There are no governing laws, insurers decide on their terms and conditions, from year to year. Every year new insurers, products, practices and fine prints appear to minimize insurer’s losses.
Offices, hotel & factories, car & bus fleets
Those rare occurrences involve big claims refund. The good selection of an insurer is crucial to be sure you will get a claim refund. Insurers will come and go as they can not provide the service or meet the payments to their clients. For instance, it is now hard to find insurers for: resorts near the beachfront because of typhoons, wood furniture factory cover, textile and chemicals are banned. Recently with Covid19 insurers walked out of travel insurance as any single trip was disrupted one way or another.
