ACE Announces Increase In Professional Liability Coverage For Podiatrists

Swiss-based insurer ACE Limited's (ACE) U.S. based retail operations ACE USA said Friday that its ACE Medical Risk Division has increased the reimbursement limits for legal expenses incurred due to an action by a federal or state agency arising from a podiatrist's pariticipation in the Medicare or Medicaid programs.

The company said the new Podiatrist Professional Liability Coverage Endorsement will help to mitigate and manage rising legal expenses by raising the coverage limits from $30,000 to $50,000 per action, with an annual aggregate of $50,000.

The product is underwritten by companies within the ACE Group and is offered to podiatrists exclusively by RPS Healthcare, National Program Administrator of the Podiatry PLUS program.

This new product enhancement comes to the market as ACE and RPS prepare for their participation in the 2012 Midwest Podiatry Conference in Chicago, Illinois.
