In a time when the whole world is coming together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, some insurers are doing just the opposite.
The ABC has recently reported that they obtained an internal document from TAL, one of Australia’s largest insurers, suggesting that TAL is adding an exclusion clause to some of their insurance policies that states:
“No benefit will be payable under this cover for any claim resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19, any related condition or infection or any complication thereof,”
The exclusion is suggested to apply to some policies sold through insurance brokers or directly by TAL, but does not affect existing customers or people who take out life insurance through their superannuation.
