Medical Protective Delays Payment Requirements, Suspends Cancellations Due to Ohio Disaster Emergency Order

March 21, 2012 In response to recent tornadoes and severe storms and in accordance with Bulletin 2012-01 issued by the Ohio Commissioner of Insurance, Medical Protective will provide a 60-day moratorium for cancellation of any insurance policy in effect for any policyholder in Clermont County directly affected by the storm events and suspension of any penalty attached to late payment therein.

This "moratorium" is not a waiver; it is only an extension of the grace period in which to pay the premium. After 60 days, the policyholder will have to resume making premium payments. Please note that this applies only to cancellations / non-renewals attributed to a failure to pay premiums directly as a result of the storms that occurred on March 2, 2012.

To make payment accommodations, please contact us at 800-4MEDPRO (800-463-3776), and we will be happy to discuss your immediate options.
