Forms definition:

OCCURRENCE BASED FORM means claims are covered when they occur during the policy term, regardless of when they are reported. For example, if you stop paying for an occurrence-based policy when you stop practicing, you will still have coverage for when you WERE practicing, no matter when the actual claim is reported.

CLAIMS MADE FORM means claims are covered only if there is an active policy in force. Once the policy is cancelled, for any reason, there is then no coverage. You can purchase trailing policies designed to last 2 to 5 years after you have cancelled your policy.

Claims:  We cannot accurately provide advice as to coverage for a potential or actual claim without the policy language, the facts of the claim and an understanding of the applicable law. We cannot provide advisory coverage positions without a claim. 

Should you feel you have a potential claim, please contact our office to submit the information and the Claims Department at Novex/Intact insurance will commence an investigation.
