At Professional Insurance Plans, our success comes from our time in the industry, as well as our involvement with Physician’s Assistants. We continually participate in annual conventions, component society meetings, and sponsorship of risk management seminars. It is very important to provide educations on how to avoid costly claims specific to your profession.

Professional Liability for Physician’s Assistant

As population ages, the demands and responsibilities within the healthcare system are only increasing for Physician Assistants.  You are on the front lines of clinical care and work hard to treat your patients.  A disciplinary action or malpractice claim can have unforeseen consequences on both your career and financial future.  Patients can be harmed, and they really do sue.  

A lawsuit can cost more than you might think.

Do I really need my own Insurance Policy? 
I know I am covered by my employer. 

Yes, the best protection is always your OWN POLICY- IN YOUR NAME.  Unless you are the OWNER of the policy your interests could likely be viewed as secondary to your employer.  That is where we step in.  We have coverage available that is designed to put your interests first and give you peace of mind so you can focus on your patients.

Malpractice Insurance for Physician Assistants

As a physician assistant, your career is at risk of a malpractice lawsuit that could be financially devastating. With limitations on your employer’s insurance that you may not be aware of, you could find yourself owing thousands of dollars in your own defense when that coverage fails.

Why You Need Your Own Professional Liability Insurance

Consider the likely gaps in your employer’s malpractice insurance that are leaving your career exposed:

Claims-made insurance may not cover suits filed after you have terminated your employment

Policy limits that may not be high enough to protect you and all your co-workers

Coverage that may not include lost wage reimbursement or licensing board hearing reimbursement

Coverage that likely doesn’t extend outside of the workplace, such as when you engage in volunteer, moonlighting or self-employed activities
