Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions

This is one of the most important managed care exposures that is often bought by HMOs but MSOs may not be aware of the importance of this coverage. Claims arise from normal operations of delivering service to the entity’s members. E&O liability coverage protects firms from allegations of management negligence, including the exposure area of vicarious liability, credentialing, peer review, provider selections, utilization review and claims processing. It is important that all managed care organizations, from small to large, that provide credentialing or utilization review for managed care plans should purchase E&O coverage.

Activities - Provider Selection, Utilization Review, Claim Services, establishing provider networks, sales/marketing or enrollment of HC plans, wellness programs, development of clinical guidelines, etc. plus a “catch all” for services or activities performed in the administration or management of healthcare or workers’ compensation plans.
