How to ensure claims are paid?

Ensure Retroactive Coverage

Claims pertaining to a period before the retroactive date are not covered. If there is a break in the renewal of the professional liability insurance then the retroactive date is reset to the start date of the new insurance. Ensure timely renewal and carry forward of retroactive coverage.

Declare Known Issues

Claims that come about from an issue that was known before the insurance was bought are rejected. Further it can make the policy void due to non-disclosure. This can be addressed by clearly describing any known issues when you buy your first professional indemnity cover.

Practice Lawfully

If the information in the proposal form is different from actual practice you run the risk of claim rejection. For example, you may state that you have trained nurses but may not; you may have used an OT that is not properly licensed; or not declared your specialty appropriately in the form.
