Business Owners Policy – BOP
From D.O.K. Insurance Agency
A BOP is a type of commercial insurance intended for small and medium-sized businesses. BOPs bundle general liability insurance and property insurance into a single policy making them typically a more affordable alternative over separately purchased policies.
BOPs aren’t for all types of businesses, primarily because insurance companies offer them only for specific businesses. However, most common small to medium-size businesses such as offices, retail stores, restaurants, and many others are often a great fit for the BOP program. Since BOPs not only offer bundled savings but also a wide array of extra coverages, looking into a BOP should be the first step for a business owner.
Just with all other insurance policies, there are exclusions, limitations and optional coverages.
Exclusions & Optional Coverages For BOPs
Business owner’s policies usually do not automatically include the following types of insurance:
- Liquor liability insurance for businesses that sell or manufacture alcohol
- Professional liability insurance
- Crime & Fidelity
- Workers’ compensation
- Health insurance
- Disability insurance
- Auto insurance
- Ordinance or Law
All of the exclusions listed above can potentially be added through an endorsement or a separate policy.
