PracticeENDURE: Stand Alone Tail Coverage
Stand-Alone Extended Reporting Period Policy
If your insurance needs are in transition due to a change in employment or practice circumstances and you need to purchase an Extended Reporting Period (Tail), then look no further. We offer competitive Stand-Alone Extended Reporting Period policies through our PracticeENDURE policy for physicians and surgeons across the country. As a pioneer in the industry, Aspen Insurance Holdings, LTD was actually one of the first insurance companies to offer this type of policy and we’ve been committed to it ever since.
What is an Extended Reporting Policy Period?
Stand-Alone Extended Reporting Period policies are designed to cover claims reported after the termination of a practitioner’s expiring claims made policy. It’s important to note that Stand-Alone Extended Reporting Period policies do not cover claims resulting from professional services rendered after the termination of the prior policy. Rather, they extend the ability to report a claim arising out of professional services rendered prior to the termination of the expired claims made policy.
Historically, Extended Reporting Periods (ERPs or Tail) were only available through a practitioner’s incumbent insurance carrier; however, we are pleased to work with our insurance carriers to offer Stand-Alone Extended Reporting Period policies to physicians and surgeons.

How To Report A Claim
Prompt reporting of claims and potential claims (incidents, circumstances and/or records requests that could reasonably give rise to a claim) is a critical first step in the defense of a claim. Even if a formal allegation has not yet been made, reporting adverse patient outcomes puts us on notice that a claim may develop in the future. It is always best to err on the side of caution when determining if an incident should be reported. The sooner we know about a matter then the sooner we can devote our resources to mitigate any future claims that may arise.
