HEALTH ECONOMICS DICTIONARY:

DEFINITION: What the insurance company will pay on a doctor’s behalf in the event of a claim. If your limits of liability are “$1,000,000 / $3,000,000” it would mean that the insurance company would pay a maximum of $1 million per occurrence and $3 million per year for claims.

For further clarification, refer to the examples below and assume limits of liability of 1,000,000 / $3,000,000:

· In one year you have 4 lawsuits each for $800,000:
The insurance company pays $3,000,000 and you are responsible for $200,000.
· In one year you have 2 lawsuits each for $2,000,000:
The insurance company pays $2,000,000 ($1 million each) and you are responsible for $2,000,000 ($1 million each).
· In one year you have 9 lawsuits each for $20,000:
The insurance company would pay everything.

However, most states have minimum requirements for limits of liability should you have hospital privileges. And so your thoughts are appreciated.
