Coverage Options

Claims-Made policies cover claims for incidents that occur while your policy is in effect and are also reported while your policy is in effect.
Occurrence policies cover claims arising during your policy period irrespective of when the claims are reported.

Extended Reporting Coverage (Tail)

If you discontinue your Claims-Made policy, Tail is available to guarantee coverage for claims which are reported after the termination date, provided they are based on incidents which occurred while your policy was active.

Prior Acts Coverage (Nose)

Applicants may apply for Nose that will protect you against claims arising after your former policy has expired. This eliminates the need to purchase Tail coverage from your prior carrier.
The premium for Nose coverage is calculated by incorporating the total number of years of continuous Claims-Made coverage needed.

New York State Excess Liability Coverage (Section 18)

This additional layer of coverage of $1,000,000 per claim and $3,000,000 annual aggregate is available at no cost to the physician, provided they meet the requirements set forth by NYSDFS.

Direct Pay Excess Coverage

This additional layer of coverage of $1,000,000 per claim and $3,000,000 annual aggregate is available to physicians who do not maintain a Section 18 policy and wish to purchase an excess policy, provided they meet the requirements set forth by PRI.

Medical Entity Coverage for your PC, LLC, PLLC or Partnership

For an additional premium, groups can purchase coverage at the entity level for claims arising from the alleged malpractice of practitioners listed on the policy. The policy will also extend coverage to employees such as medical assistants, licensed practical nurses, technicians and nurses.

Locum Tenens Coverage

Physicians who temporarily cover for you can be covered by your PRI policy for an additional premium. An application for this coverage is required and the covering physician must receive prior approval from PRI.
