Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, AG (NYSE:AWH) announced today new cyber liability enhancements and related services for its U.S. managed care package policy, 365Complete®. The revised policy now contains heightened cyber protection and also expands the number of managed care clients who qualify for this coverage by increasing the revenue threshold from $50M to $100M.
Originally created in 2008, 365Complete® blends Managed Care Errors and Omissions coverage with other key components. The policy clarifies the scope of the coverage, giving clients the protection they need, ensuring seamless claims service and providing the security to know that gaps are reduced.
Christian Gravier, President, North American Professional Lines, said, “This expanded policy demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing comprehensive coverage for managed care organizations within the Healthcare Management Liability Division.”
“We worked closely with our cyber team to provide small managed care organizations the tools they need to respond to a breach,” said Kerry Stetz, Vice President, Healthcare Management Liability Product Manager. “In addition to state-of-the art cyber coverage, 365Complete® clients receive access to Allied World’s Specified Response Vendors, should a privacy or network security event occur,” said Stetz.
365Complete® support services include identifying applicable state and federal breach notification statutes and assistance in retaining other response vendors for services such as notification or data forensics. For more information, please contact Kerry Stetz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
