Some general info about California Malpractice Coverage which I wrote some time ago.

Professional Liability Insurance vs. “Malpractice Insurance”

  • PLI = Professional Liability Insurance
  • Also called professional indemnity insurance (PII)
  • Also called Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance
  • Professional liability insurance takes on different names depending on the profession.  In reference to health care, it is sometimes called medical malpractice insurance.  For the most part it’s just a choice of terminology.
  • CAP provides California Professional Liability Coverage for doctors.

Other Insurance related Terminology

  • For a Glossary of some of these professional liability terms, please visit:
  • Tail and Nose coverage terms are not in the glossary above so I’ll try to explain that to the best of my ability.
  • Tail Coverage = coverage of events that occur while the policy is in force but are reported after the policy terminates.
  • Nose Coverage = “prior acts” coverage, transfers the retro-active date for an old policy to a new insurance carrier.  Nose coverage eliminates the need to purchase tail coverage from the last carrier.
