What To Do If You Have Been Declined Insurance Coverage or Have Special Coverage Problems
Once you have been declined malpractice insurance coverage by a carrier, obtaining coverage from a second carrier may be difficult. For one thing, a second carrier is likely to ask whether you have been declined by another company. Second, the same problem that caused the original declination of coverage is still likely to exist, making your chances of securing coverage doubtful. The same holds true if you have special coverage problems (e.g., a large percentage of you practice is in securities). However, there are some things you can do to increase the chances of obtaining coverage for yourself or your firm.
