Medical Professional Liability policies written by J. M. Woodworth Risk Retention Group, Inc. are offered on either Claims Made or Paid Claims forms. With a Claims Made policy form, coverage will respond to incidents arising on or after the policy retroactive date and which are reported during the term of the policy. Under a Paid Claims policy form, the liability for the indemnity shifts to the insurers when the claim is paid rather than reported or at the time of the occurrence. This allows premiums to be set on the basis of actual costs when incidents are incurred instead of reserved estimates.
