Marsh's Entertainment & Media Group provides entertainment insurance coverage on a worldwide basis for Motion Pictures, Television and D.I.C.E. productions. These producers' primary concern is to complete their productions on time and on budget. Marsh has access to all entertainment markets, using that access to obtain the best terms, conditions and pricing.
Cast Insurance provides coverage for additional expenses to complete principal photography or - in the event of necessary abandonment - aborted costs. This could result if an insured actress, actor, animal or other declared person cannot begin, continue or complete their duties in a production as a result of death, injury or sickness. Insured persons are initially covered for accident only, until such time as they are medically examined and complete a medical questionnaire. The carrier then will expand upon the coverage to include illness, if the person qualifies, based upon the medical examination and questionnaire. Coverage is also extended to include kidnapping of any insured artist or director. Cast insurance normally begins four weeks prior to the first camera day; however, additional time can be purchased in the form of Extended Pre-Production Cast Coverage.
