CNA launches insurance solution for ACOs


CNA, a leading insurer of healthcare organizations and professionals, has developed a new integrated insurance solution intended to meet the full range of exposures unique to Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs).

“The idea of an ACO is something that has been growing and evolving within the healthcare industry for many years now. The Affordable Care Act is accelerating that growth, and we will begin seeing ACOs having a significant impact on the new healthcare landscape,” said Andy Shapiro, healthcare segment leader for CNA.

“We have spent a great deal of time studying and evaluating the structure of these ACOs and the regulations that govern them. We have talked to industry leaders and healthcare providers to evaluate various exposures ACOs face, and have created what we believe is the best, most integrated insurance solution to meet the many challenges and complex risks these organizations will face,” added Shapiro.

CNA’s coverage options include healthcare professional liability, directors’ & officers’ liability; business errors and omissions, including managed care E&O; cyber liability; privacy and social media.
