COVID-19 halted many elective and non-emergency orthopedic surgeries, impacting orthopedists’ earning ability. At the same time, malpractice rates have started trending upwards. Now is a good time for orthopedic surgeons to re-evaluate their current malpractice insurance program with a broker to ensure they have the right coverage at the lowest available rates.
Rates for medical malpractice insurance for orthopedic surgeons are heavily affected by the physician’s claims history. If a doctor has had multiple claims filed against them, it will likely double the cost of their insurance rates.
Rates are also impacted by the physician’s location. See below for average rates by location for orthopedists. Mature claims-made estimates below are for informational purposes only. Occurrence coverage may be available. To get your personalized rate estimate, please request a quote.
