COVID-19 and Insurance

The global pandemic threatens to fundamentally change the way the insurance industry operates. Businesses and public health have already been impacted, with COVID-19-related government shutdowns and health issues leading to business interruptions, supply chain issues and significant liability concerns. Legislators and regulators are rapidly responding to the changing landscape with laws and regulations to protect both insured parties and insurers. Additionally, federal and state judges are starting to hear arguments regarding claims.

Insurance practitioners can stay abreast of the shifting environment during this unprecedented time by taking advantage of a broad range of practice resources, current awareness and secondary analytical content.
