American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM) Endorsed Members Malpractice Insurance
Insurance for American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM) Professionals
As a leader in developing and growing the home care medicine community, the American Academy of Home Care Medicine (AAHCM) understands the risks involved in administering care to patients in their homes, and they work hard to provide valuable resources for the benefit of their members.
In support of this calling, the AAHCM has partnered with Lockton Affinity to offer comprehensive and affordable malpractice insurance for AAHCM members—including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and students of these health professions, and Medical Directors of home care agencies.
The Coverage you Need
Malpractice claims against health care professionals are all too common, and medical care that’s provided in the patient’s home is certainly not immune to the same claims risk. No matter where care is provided, a patient who is injured or feels otherwise wronged by negligent care can be quick to seek justice. Families of the sick and elderly sometimes are influenced to pursue justice on their loved one’s behalf.
For professionals immersed in the home care medicine field, having proper insurance is essential. The protection you get with a personal Professional Liability Insurance policy from Lockton Affinity affords you these great benefits:
- Personal financial protection from the implications of a lawsuit
- Portable coverage—it’s your personal insurance no matter who you work for or if you change jobs
- Coverage is designed for the unique issues facing healthcare workers today
- Coverage is underwritten by Insurance Carriers rated “Excellent” by A.M. Best
- Endorsed by AAHCM
And, coverage isn’t just for those administering medicine or treatment. Medical Directors need protection in their roles, too. Malpractice lawsuits often name everyone involved a patient’s care, whether they provided hands-on care or not.
A personal Professional Liability Insurance policy allows you to choose the amount of coverage you need to cover you for the costs of defending a claim, and any settlements you are found liable for. Plus, it pays you for lost wages for time spent away from work in legal proceedings. It’s coverage you can’t afford to be without.
