Share your experience: claiming on your business interruption cover

12 May 2020

The BDA is encouraging practice owners across the UK to share their experience of claiming on their business interruption cover during the Coronavirus pandemic.

If you have business interruption cover please help us by completing this short survey - which is open to both BDA members and non-members.

BDA members are telling us that insurers are rejecting claims, and we are supporting a group of dentists who are taking legal action. We have instructed an experienced international financial services law firm to review the insurance policies bought by dentists across the country from all providers. 

We want to know if there are realistic options to get practices the insurance payments that they desperately need, and that they thought they were signing up to. 

This advice will give us a better understanding of your legal position, and a strong foundation with which to engage with insurers and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). 

The FCA has begun its own legal process to weigh up policies covering almost every business sector in Britain.

We will continue to campaign strongly on dentists behalf on this issue, for more information please go to our dedicated Coronavirus webpages.
