Our October issue on Side A D&O products continues to be widely read as carriers continue to innovate. But I am still pursuing the idea that larger not-for-profits don’t seem to have the interest in it that I (and many others) think they should.
In that issue, I speculated on the impact of the Affordable Care Act and the strains it is causing health care systems. We are seeing some signs of increasing purchase of Side A by those systems, but it is far from pervasive. That discussion is on page 3 of the issue. Attorney Joe Monteleone and I also wrote about the topic in July’s edition of Trustee Magazine (published by the American Hospital Association).
WRINTV asked me to comment on the Side A market and in particular the interest on the part of health care systems; the interview is here. The interview provides a bit more color to the topic.
This topic deserves more discussion than it is getting – why isn’t it?
