Beazley’s broad and flexible policy specifically for US hospitals is called the AcuteCare form.

The form also includes related claims (batch) language to improve clarity and cyber exclusion with carve back for bodily injury or property damage.
Beazley Quality Indicator Return Premium (QuIRP)
Beazley’s QuIRP Program is unique in the medical malpractice market. Instead of working from industrywide quality benchmarks, which frequently conflict with one another, Beazley adopts a tailored approach to the circumstances and needs of each individual client. At the beginning of the policy period, Beazley agrees with the client on a set of target quality improvements. If these targets are met by the end of the policy period,
the client will receive a pre-agreed return premium, which may be a substantial sum. Under this program, a client can receive a payment even if it has made a claim during the policy period.
Healthcare providers who take out the AcuteCare policy and choose to participate in the QuIRP Program, can opt to incorporate an Artificial Intelligence-powered early warning system for labor and delivery into their risk management program as well. Through this program, Beazley is seeking to institutionalize procedures that, over time, should reduce claims and further support our hospital clients.
Who we can help
Any US hospital, and larger healthcare systems managing their own claims and seeking excess protection.
