NEW YORK, March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Chip Merlin, attorney and insurance policyholder advocate, today announced the publication of Pay Up! Preventing a Disaster with Your Own Insurance Company with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.
In Pay Up!, Merlin identifies aspects of the insurance system that are potentially harmful to policyholders, including issues with A.I. decision making, legislation that goes against the interests of policyholders, and the role fraud plays in creating a tumultuous insurance landscape.
The book draws on his legal career defending policyholders against insurers and shares stories and case studies that educate the broader insurance customer base while exposing the red flags to watch out for when insurers are acting in bad faith.
“My hope is that this book will help you understand where you stand and how to proceed in the claims process and, most importantly, when to seek help with any insurance problems you face, whether on your own or with the businesses you work for,” said Merlin.
Pay Up! Preventing a Disaster With Your Own Insurance Company is now available for purchase onAmazon.com.
