In a dispute arising between Anthem Insurance (now known as Wellpoint) and what the court described as one of its excess reinsurers, Twin City Fire Insurers, Anthem sought defense and indemnification for several state and federal lawsuits alleging improper denial of reimbursement. Twin City denied coverage, arguing that those suits “related back” to the claim preceding its policy period and were accordingly excluded from coverage. An Indiana trial court agreed with Twin City, and Anthem subsequently appealed to the state appeals court. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed and remanded, holding that none of the subject policy provisions operated to exclude such coverage. The court held specifically that the reinsurance agreement covered “claims made” and found no basis to read the agreement as excluding coverage retrospectively based on notice of claims preceding the inception of coverage. The court additionally found inapplicable Twin City’s attempt to superimpose the “prior notice exclusion” onto the agreement. Wellpoint, Inc. v. National Union Fire Ins. Co., No. 05-2011 (Ind. Ct. App. July 20, 2011).
