CLIA Voluntary Excess Program: 2022/2023 Excess Insurance Renewal

With the approach of the July 1st VEP (Voluntary Excess Program) renewal date, this is an opportunity for you to review your risk portfolio and determine if you have sufficient coverage.

It is important that you renew your coverage before the end of the policy year (June 30th) to avoid gaps in coverage that may leave you unnecessarily exposed to the risk of uninsured liability.

The online application process will be open on June 6th, 2022, to ensure that you have time to complete the application and submit premium payments prior to July 1st. CLIA will also be sending a reminder to its current insureds in early June. Visit the CLIA Excess Insurance page for more information.

As in the past, firms login by using their email address and password from past online applications. If necessary, there is an option to reset your password.

New firms and new retirees are required to register for user access before they can complete the application online.

The renewal period will be open until July 31st and applications submitted after that date will have coverage pro-rated.

You can review additional information about the upcoming 2022/2023 VEP here: CLIA Excess Liability and CLIA Cyber Coverage
