We need to bridge the flood insurance ‘coverage gap’

This op-ed by Sean Kevelighan, the CEO of the Insurance Information Institute, explains what happens when there is a disparity between insured losses—damages that are covered under an insurance policy—and uninsured losses, which are paid out-of-pocket by individuals affected by a catastrophe, such as flooding. With the approach of hurricane season, this is an ideal teachable moment.
