Glossary of Insurance Terms

  • Additional Insured: a person or entity added to the certificate of insurance who is protected from the named insured’s negligence; this is typically an employer or landlord.
  • Aggregate Limit: the maximum amount of coverage available to a policyholder during the policy term; this limit is dependent on a period of time rather than an individual claim.
  • Broker: an independent insurance firm or contractor who searches the marketplace in the interest of buyers, rather than insurance companies.
  • Claims-Made: a form of insurance that only covers policyholders for claims filed while the policy is active; if an incident occurs during the policy term but is not reported until after the policy expires, it will not be covered.
  • Deductible: the amount of money (loss) that a policyholder has to pay before their insurance takes effect.
  • General Liability Insurance: insurance that protects the policyholder in the event that a client trips, falls and suffers an injury while on their property; this coverage applies to claims resulting from personal injury, bodily injury or damage to others’ property, and is often called “trip and fall” insurance.
  • Identity Theft Protection: coverage that reimburses the insured for expenses arising from identity fraud.
  • Individual Aggregate Limit: the total amount of coverage available to an individual policyholder during the policy year; this limit only applies to one person and is not impacted by claims filed against others.
  • Occurrence Form: a policy form that covers the insured for any claims filed during or after the policy term, as long as the actual incident in question occurred while the policy was active.
  • Product Liability Insurance: insurance that protects the policyholder in the event that a product used during a client session injures or affects the client in a negative way.
  • Professional Liability Insurance: insurance that provides protection against lawsuits claiming negligence, misconduct or incompetence on the policyholder’s behalf; also called malpractice insurance.
  • Shared Aggregate Limit: the maximum amount of coverage available to all individuals insured under the same shared-limit program or master policy; this amount decreases every time a claim is paid on behalf of an individual policyholder.
  • Qualifying Event: an incident that triggers coverage for an insured individual.
  • Rental Damage Insurance: coverage that protects the insured from accidental damages to property rented by the insured; this applies to any space that a professional rents or leases for their practice, from the dry wall in.
  • Stolen Equipment Insurance: coverage designed to protect the policyholder from equipment theft or damage due to fire, water, etc.; covers the cost of replacing the stolen or damaged piece of equipment used in one’s business, but does not cover damages due to wear and tear or misuse.
  • Underwriter: the insurer, or financial service provider, who evaluates the risks of insuring an individual or asset, determines the policy rates and sets the limits of coverage.
