What is medical malpractice insurance?

Medical malpractice insurance provides asset protection to doctors in the event they are sued for professional negligence (errors or omissions). Another term used for this type of coverage is Medical Professional Liability Insurance, the inspiration for the MEDPLI name.

All practicing physicians in the United States should have some type of protection against malpractice claims.  If you work for a hospital or large group, your employer might provide coverage for you.  If you are in private practice, you must purchase your own medical malpractice insurance.  MEDPLI specializes in providing malpractice insurance to private practice physicians.

First-time buyers of malpractice insurance should consult with a medical professional liability insurance specialist, such as MEDPLI.  An expert in the field should be able to help you get quotes, evaluate coverage options, and answer questions to help you secure coverage that fits your needs.
