I was thinking of working some of my vacation/weekends on a "locums" basis. I contacted Comp Health, Tiva, Linde and another one...can't recall.

They all stated they provide claims made but purchase the tail for you.

I don't know.... sounded a bit fishy.

Am I better off buying my own policy and finding places to moonlight in addition to my main job, or should I take their word for it that they'll buy my tail? Also, how long is the tail good for? Would that mean I would need to purchase a tail policy later on?

Suggestions? I'd like to work some of my vacation but not at the expense of having to deal with tail policies etc.

Any suggestions/input would be appreciated. Thanks. And please PM me if you have ideas.
