FAQs About Coverage
Medical malpractice insurance, commonly referred to as medical professional liability insurance, offers coverage to protect physicians and other healthcare professionals from claims related to alleged errors or negligence in their practice. The coverage, often referred to as a policy, ensures healthcare providers can continue offering ongoing quality care while addressing potential legal challenges.
Retroactive (Prior Acts) coverage is intended to extend protection to incidents before the policy's start date. Contact us for more details.
Tail coverage, also known as Extended Reporting Period (ERP), is an essential aspect of medical professional liability insurance that provides continued protection for claims made after a healthcare professional's policy has expired or been canceled. For example, if a physician retires or changes practice and a claim arises from past patient care, tail coverage steps in, providing continuous protection from the legal and financial risks associated with these claims.
