Cast and Crew Insurance

Cast insurance can be provided as part of a production policy. In certain cases, it can be provided as "carve out cast coverage." This type of coverage only applies to certain cast or crew members and is subject to underwriter's approval.


Cast coverage typically begins after the insured individual has undergone an examination and filled out a medical questionnaire. It typically only covers accidents. After the medical questionnaire is completed, the coverage can be extended to include illness, kidnapping, and bereavement.


It is important to note that this type of coverage is subject to the underwriter's approval. Not all types of productions, such as documentaries, may be eligible for this coverage.
