In addition a range of specialist therapies and treatments can also be insured on payment of a supplement premium.
Claims made wording: The policy is written on a "Claims Made" basis. A claims made policy covers claims reported during the policy term, provided the event that lead to the claim occurred after the retroactive date of the policy issued. If, for whatever reason, you do not continue to purchase cover, this means there is no cover in force for previous work undertaken. Therefore you will require 'Run Off' cover if you wish to be covered for previous work performed.
