Insurance and risk management issues today
Schools are facing innumerable insurance and risk management issues today, and confusion during the pandemic is only adding more uncertainty. On top of dealing with how to accomplish in-person or virtual learning, schools are facing a hardening insurance market, more restrictive coverages, increasingly detailed underwriting processes, and rising coverage costs. Overall, carriers are offering less limit, requiring higher retentions and more restrictive terms and conditions, all while increasing rates. What can school leaders who wear the risk manager hat, among other hats, do to combat these challenges? Join Rob Nielsen and Stuart Latimer from Cobbs Allen to discuss how to obtain optimal pricing and coverages during these uncertain times.
