Let’s Get Ready to RHUMBA!

ICC formed the risk purchasing group Restaurant Hospitality User Member Group RPG, Inc. (RHUMBA) to facilitate adding admitted umbrella coverage for its restaurant and hospitality clients.

Q: Why form a Risk Purchasing Group?

A: RPGs may use their group bargaining power to negotiate more favorable terms with insurers than individual companies alone could negotiate. And by setting standards of membership and employing other risk management methods, they may also help members to reduce loss experience and, in turn, gain better rates.

Q: Is the coverage different from the traditional market?

A: Just like in the traditional market, coverage may be admitted or non-admitted.

Q: Are limits shared by group members?

A: All RPGs are created differently, but RHUMBA members do not share limits.

Q: Can I get a Certificate of Insurance?

A: Absolutely. Each member has access to COIs as well as a copy of the master policy.

Q: What about claims?

A: Claims are reported to and handled by the insurer, just like in the traditional market.

Q: Can Risk Purchasing Groups fail?

A: Like traditional insurers, RPGs can become insolvent. Because RHUMBA’s policies are issued by an admitted insurer they are backed by state guarantee funds.  Not to worry – RHUMBA’s admitted insurer is rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best.
