A feature of insurance that has $0 deductible or $0 retention applicable towards defense costs even if there aren’t any indemnity costs on a claim. (Note: there may still be applicable deductibles/retentions on indemnity costs/payments). Example: on a policy with “first dollar defense” if an insurer spends $100,000 defending a claim that results in no indemnity payments, the insured would not be required to pay any out of pocket costs for defense. Embroker’s digital products are NOT First Dollar Defense policies.
