Cast and Crew Insurance: 

 

Cast insurance can be provided as part of a production policy or in certain cases, as “carve out cast coverage” to cover only certain cast or crew members, subject to underwriter’s approval.

 

Cast coverage is usually purchased on feature films or TV productions (except documentaries) but may be purchased for other types of productions.  It indemnifies the production company for the net loss or extra expenses to begin or complete principal photography of an insured production due to death, injury or illness of any insured artist or director. Insured persons are initially covered for accident only, until they are examined and complete a medical questionnaire. The insurer then will expand the coverage to include illness.  Coverage also can be extended to include kidnapping and bereavement.

 

Cast insurance normally begins four weeks before the first camera day; however, additional time can be purchased (Extended Pre-Production Cast Coverage).
