    Homeowners Insurance Isn’t a One-size-fits-all Proposition

    What’s Covered? By Mark Morris Michael Long says inflation in the cost of construction materials is complicating the equation of replacement protection.   When preparing a homeowners policy, insurance companies want to know all the details. They’re not being nosy — they just want to accurately cover any potential loss, even the unexpected ones. Indeed, insurance agents who spoke with BusinessWest said every homeowners policy begins with a worksheet that captures anything and everything about the home. Inquiries range from the obvious — like the age of the house, square footage, and condition of the roof — to details about the

    Free Covid-19 tests are only “free” if you can figure out insurance reimbursement

    Do you have a printer? Do you have a fax machine? If not, you might have trouble getting your “free” at-home Covid-19 test paid for by your health insurer. As of January 15, Americans with private insurance are able to submit their at-home testing bills to their insurer in order to get reimbursed. But for some people, that may be easier said than done.

    Almost every week since September, people who have survived car crashes with catastrophic injuries have been coming to the state Capitol building to ask legislators for help. They’re losing their care. That’s because the new no-fault auto insurance law slashed payments to their care providers nearly in half. Many care providers are going broke. As each week passes, and nothing is done, the desperation of survivors and their loved ones grows. At the Capitol gathering last week, I met 68-year-old Charlie Wallace. He told me he’d planned to be at the gathering with his son by his side. Instead, he

    Enlisting Health Insurance Companies to Help With Rapid Covid Tests Was a Dumb Idea

    That’s not hyperbole, it is by design: The role of private insurers within a for-profit multi-payer system is to restrict access as a gatekeeper, determining who is entitled to use which healthcare services and how much they pay for this.
