    If for the following year, the entry should have been to prepaid insurance, an asset account, not to insurance expense.

    This is because the expense is not for the current year. The expense belongs in the next fiscal year.

    Current year entry, should have been
    DB Prepaid Insurance
    CR Cash

    To correct this entry,
    DB Prepaid Insurance 24,000
    CR Insurance Expense 24,000

    This is assuming these are accounts you are supposed to use.
