PPP Coverage Highlights
- Consent to Settle Clause – We will not settle a claim without the insured’s consent.
- Vicarious Liability Coverage – A must for any dentist to protect you against liability for employees, independent contractors, employed dentists and even specialists to whom you refer patients. Vicarious liability coverage is specifically included in the PPP policy for all these exposures.
- Disciplinary and Licensure Coverage – This coverage pays the fees, costs, and expenses to defend you against state regulatory action prompted by an otherwise covered injury or damage. Defense costs are covered up to your full professional liability limits.
- HIV Protection – With the exposure to blood born pathogens, a dental professional faces risks, which were never contemplated in years past. The PPP has responded by extending income protection in the event of HIV contraction.
