Managed Care Directors, Officers (D&O) and Company Liability

When you serve on a Board of Directors, have a management position, or even as an employee of an organization, you can be sued for your decisions even when you have done your best for the company. Any party outside the company and any shareholder can claim that your decisions have affected them badly, and they sue. This product is intended to protect you when that happens. Most often, Employment Practices Liability (EPL) protection is included in the D&O coverage (see separate page on EPL).
