Plexus Points: Insurance stories we're checking out

At The Plexus Groupe, we love good stories -- especially those about insurance. With this in mind, here a half-dozen insurance-related stories we're bookmarking, reading and sharing:

-- California's health insurance exchange wants to exclude poor-performing hospitals from its network.

-- Only 10 percent of Californians have earthquake insurance.

-- Who wants to read about some of the odder claims received by a New Zealand insurer? (We do.)

Now, here's a three-pack of liability insurance stories:

-- Here's a neat idea from PropertyCasualty360: a "March Madness"-style bracket of 64 liability-insurance related issues.

-- The Fraternal Order of Police says an increasing number of its members are buying liability insurance.

-- Finally, an upstate New York town had no liability insurance on a major dam for eight years; luckily, all is well -- and coverage is now in place.
