BIBA and the ABI publish guidance to the care sector on steps to improve access to insurance cover

22nd September 2021

BIBA and the Association of British Insurers (the ABI) are aware that some care homes are struggling to access affordable insurance cover for their needs due to the impact of Covid-19. Together we have worked with our members, care providers, the Department for Health and Social Care and Local Government Association to develop guidance for care providers to help explain why there are challenges in providing employers liability and public liability insurance for communicable diseases, and what steps can be taken to improve access to insurance cover.
