If you have Professional Liability coverage, make sure you understand whether it is a “claims-made” or “claims-made-and-reported” policy. The latter can be a trap.

Both types of policies trigger coverage when the claim is made. The difference lies in when the claim must be reported to the insuring company. In a “claims-made” policy, the claim must occur during the policy term and be reported “as soon as possible” or “as soon as practical,” which may be after the end of the policy term. A “claims-made-and-reported” policy has much more stringent reporting provisions, which may cause issues for claims arising late in a policy period if they are not reported before the policy term ends or shortly after.
