Deductibles


Deductibles ensure that insurance does what it is intended to do – pay for substantial losses, not minor ones. Essentially, the deductible is the amount for which you are self-insured.

Establish Regular Communication with Your Insurance Broker

The more your insurance broker knows about your organization, the better prepared he or she is to advise you about changes in the marketplace, as well as the type and amount of insurance you need. By implementing risk management strategies you may be able to eliminate or mitigate key risks and save money on your premiums.   Be sure to periodically review your policies with your insurance representative. Over time, your organization may grow and your need for certain coverage may increase. Or, as your business evolves, you could find yourself paying for coverage that you no longer require.
