Your “per occurrence,” sometimes written as “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).
“Occurrence” or “claims made” refers to the type of policy coverage you’d be purchasing. This affects when you are able to report a claim on your policy.
What is a claims made policy?
You are only able to report a claim on a claims made policy while the policy is active. For instance, if you let your policy expire, and then six months later a former patient brings a lawsuit against you for an incident which occurred during the policy period, a claims made policy would no longer cover that claim (unless you purchased an Extended Reporting Endorsement, or “Tail Coverage”).
What is an occurrence policy?
An occurrence policy covers you indefinitely for incidents that occur within the policy period, meaning you are covered for the time period during which you had the policy even if it is no longer active. It is essentially the same as a claims made policy with a built-in Tail.
For our Allied Health clients:
All CM&F insurance products include occurrence coverage, so you never have to worry about purchasing tail coverage!
