Understanding and Explaining COVID-19 Exclusions to Customers in Simple Language
2 March 2021

Following the global COVID-19 pandemic, many insurers and reinsurers have introduced exclusions to clarify that their policies will not cover any future claims arising from the Covid 19 pandemic or similar events.

This exclusion is introduced to reduce insurers and reinsurers’ exposure to such a systemic risk. In so doing, they have potentially reduced the insurance or reinsurance protection offered to their customers.

This workshop will discuss some COVID-19 exclusions, the intentional and unintentional impact of such exclusions and advice on how to simply explain the impact of the new language to customers.

  • Classes of insurance and reinsurance where Covid 19 exclusions are being applied
  • Examples of exclusions

  • How pollution and contamination exclusions may also apply
  • Why you need to watch claims made policies
