Guaranteed Replacement Cost coverage is available for new model year vehicles.

This covers items such as turnout gear, defibrillators, EMS kits, portable radios, pagers, drones, golf carts, boats, and ATVs. Additional exposures include members’ personal property, patient’s property, computers and software, and commandeered property.
An Umbrella/Excess Liability policy is designed to provide extra limits of insurance above the primary limits provided under a commercial package policy. It also covers damages and any legal defense costs you incur if the coverage under the primary policies is exhausted.
Cyber liability claims are on the rise; if your organization has stored patient information or members’ personal information on file, you could experience a security breach that may cost thousands to remedy. Cyber Liability coverage protects five parts: Network Security Liability, Privacy Violation, Cyber Extortion, Security Breach Notice, and Crisis Management.
The ESIP program has expanded the definition of an employee within their Commercial Crime policy to include all board members, non-compensated officers, directors, treasurers, and volunteers. Coverage is available for employee theft, forgery or alteration, and theft of money and securities.

Coverage options include weekly disability benefits payable up to LIFETIME. An A&H policy also includes Family Expense Benefits, which reimburses a family member who assists in caring for an injured person confined to a hospital or receiving outpatient care. Such expenses include food, gas, lodging, childcare, and even the family member’s lost wages. There is no waiting period to qualify for this benefit.
A 24-Hour AD&D Policy covers all eligible members, whether they are on a call or off-duty, anywhere in the world.
