Physician Malpractice Insurance

Physician Malpractice Insurance

Medical malpractice insurance is a type of liability insurance which helps protect physicians against accusations of wrongful practices. Malpractice insurance can help protect a physician accused of causing bodily harm, property damage, major medical expenses, or wrongful death. This is critical - the American Medical Association has shown that more than 60% of all physicians aged 55 or older have faced at least 1 lawsuit. A general physician can be expected to pay anywhere between $8,000 and $50,000 per year on medical malpractice insurance. Capson helps reduce these costs for physicians by streamlining the underwriting and enrollment process. Capson services both physician groups as well as individual medical malpractice policies.

Types of Medical Malpractice Insurance for Physicians

There are three main types of malpractice insurance for physicians:

  1. Claims-Made - an insurance policy which covers events that happen only during the time of your policy.
  2. Occurrence - an insurance policy that covers claims that happened when you had the policy, even if the event itself is filed after your policy ends.
  3. Claims-Paid - an insurance policy which only covers claims paid during the period of the policy.

What is Included in the Coverage

Much of Capson's group and individual medical malpractice insurance coverage deals with a range of expenses. This can include medical damage costs, compensatory and punitive damages, court costs, settlement and arbitration costs, attorney fees, and more.
