Premium Audit in the New Normal World | Jon Kovach | AFIRM

Track 2 - Auditors: The "New Norm" for Premium Auditors - Debunked | Joseph Gubbins | Wilkinson Insurance Services Inc.

Many things have changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There were travel restrictions, mask mandates, social distancing, etc. For an auditor, the fundamentals and auditing concepts pretty much remained the same. In this presentation, I want to explore the few, minor changes that most auditors experienced as well as examine all the things in the industry that remained the same. When comparing what changed in premium audit to what stayed the same, one might conclude there really isn't a "New Norm" for a premium auditor.
