6 Reasons to Call Underwriting

6 reasons to call underwriting

A guest blog by Remy Palumbo, Senior Underwriter

Many of us have a tendency to purchase insurance and then set aside our policy hoping to never need it.  Of course sometimes “life happens” and as a result, there are times when you’ll want to provide the underwriter of your medical professional liability insurance carrier with updates.  A few of these include:

1) When your mailing address and/or practice locations change.

2) When the scope of your duties change (if you are employed or contracting).

3) When you are thinking of retiring or closing the practice.

4) If your total number of practice hours (for locations covered) falls over or under 20 hours per week.

5) If you are not sure a practice scenario (e.g., a new procedure, a restructuring of your practice) is covered.

6) When you complete additional training or certification in a specialty or subspecialty.

In short, we encourage you to call underwriting any time you have questions about your insurance policy.
