Insurance Coverage For Government Investigations And Lawsuits: The Devil In The Details

With the federal government being the single largest payer in the U.S. healthcare industry, most providers and suppliers will at some point face potential liability for alleged violations of one of the many healthcare laws and regulations. Given the variety of ways in which different government entities can investigate and prosecute potential violations, it is often difficult to discern what is covered and what is not covered under a company’s various lines of insurance, including directors and officers (“D&O”) and errors and omissions (“E&O”) coverage. Moreover, relying solely on your insurance carriers to make those coverage determinations may result in missing out on potential coverage for substantial costs incurred in defending against government investigations and lawsuits. As such, it is critical to understand what types of matters trigger coverage under your policies, and how and when to report them to your carriers to maximize potential recovery.           

On September 18, 2018, King & Spalding will host a one-hour webinar discussing insurance coverage for government investigations and lawsuits in the healthcare space. This webinar will focus on:

  • Claim-initiating matters in government investigations, e.g., subpoenas / CIDs, informal inquiries, formal requests for information or documents, voluntary self-disclosures, and audits.  The panel will discuss potential coverage for such matters under D&O, E&O, and other lines of insurance, and how minor differences in policy language can have a major impact on coverage.
  • The evolving landscape of government investigations and lawsuits in the healthcare arena, with a particular focus on recent developments in False Claims Act—or “qui tam”—litigation. 
  • 10 best practices for notice and claims handling with your broker and carriers.
