Pooled & Commercial Liability Programs

BICEP provides excess liability coverage to its members through a combination of pooling and commercial insurance.  The Pooled Excess Liability Program provides defense to members against claims and suits exceeding $1 million that arise from covered occurrences.

BICEP purchases reinsurance and excess liability insurance from the commercial market when it makes economic sense to do so.

However, the specific program structure can vary depending on marketplace conditions.
