Manchester Specialty Programs Partners with Allied World Insurance to Offer Enhanced Insurance Program for Home Health/Hospice, Medical Staffing Firms & Miscellaneous Medical Facilities
Manchester, NH, October 21, 2015 – Leading national specialty underwriting and insurance program management firm for Home Care, Hospice, Medical Staffing Firms, and Miscellaneous Medical Facilities, Manchester Specialty Programs, is pleased to announce a customized Miscellaneous Medical Suite program through Allied World Insurance. This enhanced product, exclusively available through Manchester Specialty, offers brokers and their clients additional limits and coverage beyond the traditional Allied World Miscellaneous Medical Suite℠.
“Our personal commitment to the health care industry goes back over 30 years, and we have continually worked to provide our broker partners and their insureds with exceptional solutions in the health care space,” said Bill Thompson, President and CEO of Manchester Specialty Programs. “For example, with emerging risks developing as a result of the shift in location of care, a tighter regulatory environment and increased cyber threats, we want to remain at the forefront of providing a comprehensive package solution that includes additional coverages that address these risks and others. With Allied World as our partner, we are able to accomplish this with broader coverage, greater limits and added-value risk management services.”
The Allied World Miscellaneous Medical Suite℠ offers Medical Malpractice/ Professional and General Liability, Privacy Liability & Network Risk coverage, and Management Liability that includes Directors & Officers Liability, Employment Practices Liability, and Fiduciary Liability for many types of Miscellaneous Medical Facilities. Allied World is rated “A (Excellent) XV”, and the program is available in all states on a non-admitted surplus lines basis.
The exclusive enhancements to Allied World’s program available with Manchester Specialty include: Regulatory Audit Coverage with $100,000 in defense coverage (can go up to a maximum sublimit of $250,000), dedicated Excess Coverage for Executives with a sublimit of $100,000, Non-Owned and Hired Automobile Coverage shared with the General Liability limit, additional Employee Benefits Liability limits of $1M/$1M, Damage to Patient’s Property with a limit of $500/$5,000 sublimit, Employed Physicians limits shared with the entity, and Waiver of Subrogation and Blanket Additional Insureds at no charge for Medical Staffing risks, among other key enhancements.
In addition, with Manchester Specialty, policyholders have access to flexible payment options whereby they can pay two separate premium installments during the year. Discounted risk management services are also available with Marshall Dennehey for RAC regulatory and compliance guidance, and MRO Corp. for assistance in mitigating risks associated with Protected Health Information (PHI).
In order for brokers to obtain a quote for Manchester Specialty’s custom Allied World Miscellaneous Medical Suite form, at least two “towers” of coverages must be submitted: Medical Malpractice/Professional & General Liability, along with either Privacy Liability & Network Risk and/or Management Liability (D&O/EPLI).
