BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Integro launches health care errors and omissions coverage

Reprints

Integro Ltd. on Monday said it has launched professional liability/errors and omissions insurance coverage for U.S. health care institutions.

The coverage is designed to protect health care institutions with self-insured professional liability programs from exposures in medical malpractice claims administration, New York-based Integro said in a statement.

The coverage is underwritten by London-based Cove Program Underwriters and features limits of up to $5 million. It provides protection for health care entities and its claim staff against claims alleging bad faith, deceptive claims practices and failure/negligence in providing professional services of claims handling, adjusting and underwriting, Integro said in a statement.

“This product has been designed to address growing exposures faced by health care entities self-insuring. In a sector that continues to see mergers and acquisition activity, the heightened exposure faced by those with in-house claims and underwriting functions increases,” London-based Scott Simmons of Cove Program Underwriters said in the statement.
