not everyone is going to understand everything all the time. I’m trying to believe that is the case here. but the fact that I can’t seem to follow policy discussions on insurance irks me. when AIG testifies, it scares me.
here’s what I managed to understand from today’s discussion in the House Insurance Committee:
reinsurance is an insurance policy that an insurance company buys in case there is a confluence of events and they don’t have enough money to cover it, so their insurance policy supplements them.
most reinsurance policies require the insurance company to post 100% of the assets they intend to have insured, but some people want the posting rule to be on a scale between 20% and 100%.
AIG really likes that idea a lot.
Texas Windstorm Insurance Association policies are for wind and hail damage. they are single payer, but we can’t have single payer health insurance.
and that’s it.
