Berkshire Hathaway Travel Protection ExactCare Family
I had a claim - I had to return early due to family illness. I started a claim w/ Berkshire Hathaway and rep sounded OK. Then I got their emailed long list of 13 Dr. statements, ID copies, consent forms, hotel receipts, cancellation policy of the airline[s], ticket copies, ticket numbers, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. they needed before they could begin to review my claim.

It would have taken me hours to get all this material together, if I could of at all. I would guess this is a technique they use to minimize payouts. I feel it would be a waste of my time to try to collect everything they wanted.

I thought one of Warren's companies would be better than this!!! Interesting dichotomy - ins. companies want to sell policies, but then they don't want to pay....
