Insurance agents provide sale and service on insurance policies. Some specialize in just one company, some handle a range. They will explain the various policies to you, write up the policy and issue it, run your payments, and handle claims on the policy.

He also act as the SPOKESMAN of the insurance company so that he may be able to put on the market an insurance. He is also an AGENT because he get a commission everytime a entity buys and believe in what he is selling.

The previous posts have be correct w the exception of the person who doesn't figure out insurance. As an agent I have no power to deny a claim, or to even SUGGEST denying a claim.

Most claims are pretty clear cutcovered, or not covered!!

My responsibility is to inform the client roughly speaking all aspects of the product self considered after learning around what risk exposures they have whether it is for their home, auto, business.

I also hold a responsibility to present complete factual information to the company so they are competent to properly access the risk they are insuring.

When a claim situation develops I am able to assist the client w any question & guide them through the process.…...

...Commercial Insurance – United Healthcare PPO ------------------------------------------------- BUA 211 – Spring 2013 Denise Wehr Commercial Insurance – United Healthcare PPO ------------------------------------------------- BUA 211 – Spring 2013 Denise Wehr The topic I chose to research was commercial insurance, more specifically United HealthCare, which is associated with a preferred provider organization (PPO). A PPO is a health care organization of providers, hospitals, and diagnostic and lab facilities that are contracted together and provide health care services at a reduced cost. PPOs provide significant benefits to the providers who join them. PPOs provide more freedom for the insured to see whom they want to see and not be tied down to a specific group. In most instances, the insured has to pick from the providers that are in that PPO organization. But, there are times there is an out-of-network benefit that allows the insured to see a particular provider who is not within that PPO. The insured does need to select a primary care provider (PCP), so as a result the PCPs are not needed as gatekeepers for patients to see specific specialty providers. No referrals are needed. However, some specialists only will see patients who are referred to them by the PCP. One such PPO plan is United Healthcare. This insurance is a segment of bigger group named UnitedHealth Group (UHG). Richard T Burke created the UnitedHealth Group in 1974 and headquartered in Minnetonka...

...Contact Us Essay on Insurance Regulations and its Impact by R Jain Essay on Insurance Regulations and its Impact. The advent of economic reforms in 1991 related to public enterprises, trade and commerce, industry and even tax reforms, created a lot of controversy relating to the Insurance sector. So the R.N. Malhotra Commission was set up to suggest reforms and regulations in this sector, in April 1993. The Malhotra Committee submitted its report to finance ministry suggesting privatization of insurance service and setting up of a Regulatory Body in January 1994. However the Congress Government and the subsequent Janata Government failed to push through the reformatory Bill, too busy with their own survival. It was finally pushed through by the present incumbent BJP Government. In India, Insurance had always been a national monopoly. The Life Insurance Corporation was created in 1956 by amalgamating 245 private sector insurance companies and the General Insurance Corporation was crated in 1973. Both were monopolistic bodies when this sector was opened to private players with a minimum capital required of Rs. 200 crores. The money invested in Life Insurance was supposed to be utilized for planned economic development of our nation. This was one of the objectives of nationalization and while investing these public monies which were held in trust, the Corporation was to keep national priorities and reasonable returns as their prime objectives.

The report was based upon the overall insurance company’s problems and prospects in Bangladesh. .

It is a contract whereby the insurers, on receipt of a consideration known as premium, agree to indemnify the insured against losses arising out of certain specified unforeseen contingencies or perils insured against. It can play an important role in a country’s economy. It is an old form of financial practice of sharing risk, which was introduced in this area in mid-18 the Century. DEFINITION OF INSURANCE: In legal terms, insurance is a contract of uberrima fideism, i.e. a contract of utmost god faith.

...INTRODUCTION OF INSURANCE TO NIGERIA The concept of insurance in its modern form was introduced into Nigeria by the British in the closing years of the 19th century with the establishment of trading posts in what is now known as Nigeria towards the end of the 19th century by European trading companies, mostly British. These companies started effecting their insurance with established insurers in the London insurance market. As time went on, some British insurers appointed Nigerian agents to represent their interest in the country. These agents later metamorphosed into full branch offices of their parent companies in Britain. The first branch office in Nigeria was the Royal Exchange Assurance in 1921, later followed by other British companies. Indigenous Nigerian insurers and re-insurers later followed such as NICON established in 1969 and Nigeria Reinsurance Corporation established in 1977. There are well over 200 direct insurance companies and over five professional reinsurance companies operating in Nigeria today.Most of the country’s major or large marine risks are placed in the London market and at Lloyd’s. The influence of these foreign markets and their marine insurance practices are quite substantial in Nigeria such that the Institute of London Underwriters’ (ILU) clauses are extensively used in both hull and cargo insurance business in Nigeria.
