Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John F. King released a second Directive to Georgia’s insurance industry with additional measures aimed at assisting individuals and business impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 public health challenge.

Specifically, the Directive asks labs providing COVID-19 testing to be mindful of what they charge and requests that insurers reimburse those labs at an in-network rate.

The Directive states that the Department will expedite the review process for any carrier or broker interested in offering Business Interruption Coverage specifically tailored towards potential losses due to COVID-19. It also supports local insurance agents by waiving their Continuing Education requirements needed for license renewal through April 30th.
