Discovery Provision

Discovery Provision

Definition

Provisions that permit insureds to report incidents or circumstances that may result in claims in the future, found mainly in professional liability insurance policies written with claims-made coverage triggers. Discovery provisions, which are also known as "awareness" or "notice of potential claim" provisions, allow an insured to lock in coverage for such events so that coverage will apply under the current claims-made policy, regardless of how far in the future a claim is eventually made in conjunction with the incident that has been reported.
