Government contractors that work on military bases require Defense Base Act coverage, more commonly known as DBA coverage. Many times these contractors are in international jurisdictions and are subject to global perils not commonly found domestically. DBA coverage is similar to Workers Compensation insurance, and when working overseas should include additional coverage extensions such as Kidnap and Ransom, and Repatriation. In addition to addressing Government Contractor's International and Global exposure, Gulf Coast Underwriters also insures their domestic operations.
