Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Your “Per Occurrence,” or “Per Claim,” limit refers to the total amount the insurance company will pay per incident during the policy term. Your “Aggregate” limit is the total amount the insurance company will pay for multiple claims over the course of one policy term (which is often one year).
Most employers do provide some level of malpractice insurance for their employees. The only way to know for certain is to ask for a certificate of insurance every year to confirm that you are a “named insured.” Millions of medical professionals purchase personal professional liability insurance, also known as medical malpractice insurance, protection in addition to what their employer provides. Coverage that is portable from job to job, protects your license, your personal assets and financial future is ALWAYS the best option. CM&F offers both individual liability insurance and group liability insurance.
