Prior Acts Coverage

Malpractice insurance is a type of liability insurance. It can include provisions for an occurrence policy endorsement, claims made policy endorsement or full prior acts coverage. The following information will help you decide on the best fit for your insurance needs.

Full prior acts coverage is an option that protects insured individuals who had claims-made coverage directly prior to their current policy period. However, the full prior acts coverage is used when the claims made policy was help with a different insurance company than the new policy the hold active. It is only available when the insured has not purchased an extended reporting period endorsement from their prior insurance company. Full prior acts coverage is a type of liability insurance that protects the insured against claims arising out of incidents that happened before the new policy term of coverage effective date. This is important malpractice insurance to have if you have switched companies and did not add the extended reporting period endorsement to your old claims made policy. Otherwise, you may have a period of non-covered liability.

Another way to avoid non-covered liability is to purchase liability insurance such as an occurrence policy. This type of malpractice insurance may be more expensive than a claims made policy or adding full prior acts coverage. Occurrence policies protect you against claims made during the policy term, even if they are made after the term of active coverage has expired. However, they do not pay out during claims which take place when the coverage was not active.
