Program Description

Many practitioners hired by insurance companies are often asked to review and rebut the claim made by the insured. Instead of gathering all the information necessary to make the initial calculation, the practitioner needs to be able to look at the claim submitted and the documents used to support it and then identify items that need to be added, removed, or modified as well as what additional support is needed to substantiate those changes. This webinar will teach practitioners who might be hired by insurance companies what steps to take in rebutting the claims promulgated by the insured’s.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Examine an insured's business interruption (BI) calculation and understand its components
- Utilize the BI policy language to support any challenge to the insurer's BI calculation
- Understand the use of interviews and documents in the compilation of the challenge
- Perform the Insurance Company's BI calculation and present the Insurer's rebuttal of and challenge to the BI claim
