Inclser may decline coverage because of claims' history


Should claims have an apostrophy?

It's difficult to tell.  The sentence doesn't make sense.  I have no idea what 'Inclser', but you may mean 'insurer'. 

If you are writing of the history of a particular claim, then "claim's" could possibly be used.

If the person has made many claims on an insurance policy, then the simple plural "claims" could be used.

I can't think of a situation where the plural possessive "claims'" would be used.


These are all just guesses, however.
