From Guild Insurance,

If you don’t read the fine print, you don’t know what you’re missing. As an optometrist, you understand that sometimes what you don’t see is just as important as what you do see.

Being underinsured is more common than you might think. If a worst-case scenario occurs and you need to make a claim, it’s fair to expect your insurance will cover any amount up to and including your insured value. Surprisingly, this may not always be the case.

Some insurance policies include an averages clause – a clause that can limit the payout of any claim if you find yourself accidentally underinsured. For many people, it’s a surprise to learn that these types of clauses exist. For some, they only find out after it’s too late. Understanding your policy now, rather than after a claim is the best way to protect your business, and your livelihood.

With Guild Insurance, you won’t have to worry. We offer Reinstatement Plus, so whether you suffer a partial or total loss, you’ll have a safety net on top of the amount you’re insured for.
