Errors & Omissions Liability
Errors and omissions coverage addresses the largest area of exposure claims arising from the day-to-day management of health care provided to members. E & O insurance covers the exposure areas that include vicarious liability, credentialling and peer review, provider selection and utilization review.
Billing Errors & Omissions
Billing E&O responds to claims alleging errors regarding duplicate billing, billing for services not rendered or for unnecessary services, upcoding, billing for services that do not meet the standard of care, and billing for supervision of residents.
If an organization is perceived as trying to thwart competition, it may be charged with violating various anti-trust laws. For example, a merger or acquisition between two companies resulting in an organization that would dominate a particular market could result in allegations of unlawful restraint of trade. Other violations include monopolies, price fixing and price discrimination, group boycotts, and exclusive dealing.
Employment Practices Liability Insurance
Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) protects against allegations of employment discrimination, such as acts based on gender, race, minority states, age or handicap, as well as wrongful termination. EPLI coverage provides payments for defense costs, litigation and settlements.
