COVID’s Impact on Home Care Insurance – Exlusions & Coverage

Prior to the COVID outbreak, most insurance carriers did not have an exclusion for Communicable Disease on their policies. However, starting in 2021, it has become standard practice for many insurance carriers to include this type of exclusion not only for General Liability, but under Professional Liability coverage as well. For industries such as home care with front-line essential workers, this can have a significant impact on an agencies’ potential exposure to claims & lawsuits.

Enjoy this free webinar from HCAOA insurance insider, Gavin Studner from Odell Studner Group, to learn more about this exclusion and how your agency can better protect itself from a liability perspective.

Home Care Safety & Loss Control

COVID-19 has altered the home care Workers’ Compensation marketplace drastically for the foreseeable future. With insurance carriers in certain states required to automatically cover presumed Covid-19 related claims under Workers’ Compensation, carriers are scrambling on how to cover the cost and mitigate future claims. Therefore, the cost will ultimately be passed down to the home care agency, which will lead to higher Workers’ Compensation rates and gross margin decreases.
