Sometimes bad things happen to good people.

With thousands of businesses affected in the recent West Virginia floods, it’s important to know that most commercial insurance policies do not cover flooding. Without flood insurance your insureds will be stuck if their business floods and it – or their contents – are damaged. Flood insurance is designed to pick up where commercial insurance stops by covering the business and its contents if they are damaged by a flood.

Interstate has flood insurance products to help your insureds stay afloat. With every state experiencing a flood in the past five years and knowing that just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage – it’s now more important than ever for your customers to have flood protection in place.

Naloxone Amendatory Endorsement

Interstate is pleased to announce that Great American is now offering a Professional Liability endorsement with regards to the administering of Naloxone for many classes of our industry leading Specialty Human Services program.

In July 2015, the Centers for Disease Control reported that the number of heroin overdose deaths quadrupled between 2002 and 2013. In that same month, states began to enact emergency legislation to address the devastation of opioid overdoses. Some states began to allow Naloxone, a drug with the ability to counteract opiates, to be administered without prescription.

How does this affect your clients?
These new laws allow various human and social service organizations to obtain and administer doses of Naloxone without a physician’s order.

This new endorsement expands coverage to the insured, its employees and volunteer workers (as defined in the professional liability form) in their rendering or failure to render “Professional Services” including:
The furnishing, dispensing or administrating of Naloxone (or reasonably equivalent drug) used as permitted by applicable state or federal law in response to an opioid overdose as part of the Named Insured’s operation as a social service, human service, religious, educational or cultural organization.
