If you read the newspaper or watch TV, you know that insurance companies often get a bad rap. But an insurance company is a business like any other. The insurance company has employees that it pays and needs to make a profit to stay in business. We do not deny this right to any other company, so the insurance company should not be denied this right.
If a particular insurance company doesn’t make a profit, it won’t stay in business for long. If it’s not in business, it’s the insurance-buying public that suffers. Therefore, it is in all of our interests for insurance companies to do well financially. Insurance companies often get a reputation for denying all claims. There are laws in place to prevent insurance companies from denying false claims. But, insurance companies must evaluate all claims to determine if each is covered by the respective policy. Insurance companies receive a premium from the policies they issue.
Insurance companies determine the amount of the insurance premium based on their assessment of the risks they insure. They couldn’t pay losses that weren’t insured – they didn’t receive a premium for losses that weren’t covered under the policies and would quickly go out of business if they paid out uncovered claims. For this reason, they are not the “devil in disguise” when they evaluate and deny claims. Instead, they do their job, which is to pay covered losses and deny uncovered losses. By denying claims that aren’t covered, the insurance company is working hard to maintain its profitability and stay in business – an advantage to all of us.
