What is the difference between occurrence and claims-made coverage?
An Occurrence policy covers a loss that occurs during the policy period regardless of when that claim was made. A Claims-Made policy requires the claim be made or reported while the policy is in force or during the extended reporting period (Tail). Both an Occurrence policy and Claims-Made policy have their strengths. In general, most lower premium paying medical professionals carry Occurrence coverage whereas most higher premium paying medical professionals have the option to purchase Claims-Made which can be less money during the initial years.
Are your plans flexible and customizable to the coverage options I need?
Our insurance plans are extremely flexible. We offer full time, part time and moonlighting policies for almost all professionals.
I work for several different employers. Will that affect my coverage or rate?
That depends. We do have a policy type that would cover you for all your work at one rate. The best option is to call our service professionals at 800-221-4904 and discuss your specific situation.
I just changed jobs. Will I have to pay more for my liability insurance?
It depends. Generally speaking, if you move from one job to another within the same scope of practice the premiums should be relatively similar. If, however you change state or increase your risk of services, there may be a change in premium.
