The Beazley Remedy policy is highly flexible, enabling clients to select combined or separate limits under any or all of the four insuring clauses on an admitted or a surplus lines basis.

It is the first of it's kind offering a standalone option for regulatory liability for governmental investigations into billing practices.

Coverage responding to actions brought by or on behalf of government entities for billing errors and omissions; also covers claims brought by commercial payors.
Employee benefits programs such as health plans, pension plans and 401(k) accounts are set up by employers to help their employees protect their financial futures. Unfortunately, if these plans don't perform the way they are expected to, or when a problem arises in the administration of benefits, the company and the plan fiduciaries may find their own financial futures in jeopardy. Many don't realize that the individuals responsible for running benefit plans face personal liability in the event of a claim.
Employment Practices Liability
Beazley understands that managing your workforce is one of the biggest challenges healthcare organizations face every day. With ever changing laws, regulations and governmental oversight, organizations face the possibility of administrative actions or civil complaints. In 2014, the EEOC saw just shy of 89,000 charges filed. Almost daily there is news of large sum verdicts or settlements. From pre-claim loss mitigation services included within your Policy to superior claim handling, Beazley is here to protect you.
Directors and Officers Liability (D&O)
Directors and officers of healthcare providers have tremendous responsibilities to their patients, employees, creditors, bondholders, vendors and communities. With these responsibilities comes the pressure to deliver the highest quality care while also making difficult decisions to ensure the long term well-being of their facilities. These decisions could not only jeopardize the continuance of their facilities, but can also put their own personal assets at risk.
