What defense attorneys do you use?

We partner with highly experienced and effective legal counsel based on the jurisdiction and context of each case. It is important to us that our insureds have a high comfort level with their selected defense counsel, so we welcome the input of the physicians and groups we insure.

How are legal costs and other claims expenses handled?

All legal costs and claims expenses are paid outside of your limit of liability. This means the full limit of your policy remains available for your protection from a judgment or settlement.

Do you offer free tail coverage?

Yes. In many common instances, tail coverage is free to the physicians we insure. We will waive the premium for an Extended Reporting Period Endorsement should any of the following events occur while the policyholder or insured physician is actively insured with us:

  • Death of the insured physician
  • The insured physician becomes permanently disabled and cannot continue the practice of medicine
  • The insured physician fully retires from the practice of medicine at any age and has been continuously insured for 2 full years preceding retirement

Will speaking with someone at OmniSure for risk advice cost me anything or be communicated to Indigo’s claims team?
