the situation is similar to the healthcare equipment proposal, the proposal only mentions a key and there is no guidance which values are expected. As you are writing about “types” of insurances I would expect these types listed and explained.
Additionally looking at taginfo gave me the impression that the insurance:*=* system is used with different semantics (e.g. insurance:car=yes will likely not be intended to mean: this place accepts car insurances).
My suggestion would be something more explicit/descriptive and not colliding with existing usage (none of the insurance* tags seems documented, so you better avoid them, unless you’re sure what the people who applied them had in mind).
Admittedly they’re all rather bulky.
If you don’t mention the types you might get people adding the names of individual insurance companies or products.
