DYK dogs are one of the leading causes of homeowner’s insurance claims?

Even the most well-mannered dogs can bite or cause some chaos when they feel threatened or are trying to protect their owners.

While the liability portion of homeowners insurance can cover this type of accident, some companies exclude certain breeds so it’s important to know what your insurance does and does not cover.

Another option is dog liability insurance which can fill in those coverage gaps.

Contact your insurance agent and ask for more information or visit us at https://bit.ly/35zk7hc.

Today, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act for the third time and Pennsylvania joins the country in celebrating this monumental decision that will ensure healthcare protections for more than 20 million Americans now, and for future generations.

Pennsylvania has worked towards this same goal by expanding our Medical Assistance program and creating Pennie, our own state-based health insurance exchange, which collectively provides health care coverage for over a million Pennsylvanians.

PA Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman spoke to the ruling asking that we continue to move our health care system forward. “With this decision, it is time to end the fruitless challenges to the Affordable Care Act, move on from political partisanship, and collectively look to the future. Pennsylvania stands ready and remains committed to helping our citizens access affordable, quality care.”
