Pure Claims Made Policy

Pure Claims-Made Policy

Definition

A type of claims-made policy requiring that a claim must be made against the insured during the policy period for coverage to apply. Unlike claims-made and reported forms, pure claims-made policies do not specify that the claim must also be reported to the insurer during the policy period. Instead, they indicate only that the claim must be reported to the insurer "immediately" or "as soon as practicable." For insureds, pure claims-made policies are preferable to claims-made and reported policies because it is sometimes difficult to report a claim to an insurer when it is made late in a policy period.
