General or Business Liability Insurance from The Hartford Purchased through Hays Affinity

​Effective September 7, 2016, AIHA changed the program administrator for its sponsored Professional Liability Insurance plan. Participants in the programs will retain their current Professional Liability Insurance policies and the details of the coverage and the cost of coverage will remain unchanged, as will the insurance company, Lloyds of London.  All program administration including policy application, issuance and claims administration will be handled by Alliant Insurance Services, a privately held, national insurance brokerage firm. The AIHA program will be administered from their offices in Chantilly, Virginia.

If you had purchased a General or Business Insurance policy from The Hartford through Hays and would like to also transfer the administration of this policy to Alliant, you must send The Hartford a Broker of Record Letter on your company letterhead requesting this change.  AIHA’s sponsored insurance program only included the Professional Liability insurance, therefore, our switch to Alliant did not include the other policies you purchased through Hays.  Below is a template for the Broker of Record Letter should you wish to request this change.  Please note that if you do not make this change, Alliant Insurance Services will not be able to assist you with anything related to policies other than the Professional Liability Insurance.
