Morristown, NJ (August 3, 2017) –ProSight Specialty® Insurance announced consumer protection measures to ensure Illinois consumers suffer no undue stress and hardship resulting from the flooding in Cook, Kane, Lake and McHenry counties of Illinois. As a result of these counties being declared disaster areas, ProSight is implementing safeguards for policyholders in the affected areas to ensure there is no lapse in coverage during this difficult recovery process.

In response to Illinois Company Bulletin 2017-03, the ProSight Group of Insurance Companies is suspending policy cancellations and non-renewals for affected policyholders until September 30, 2017 as a result of recent flooding in Cook, Kane, Lake, and McHenry counties.
