Professional Liability Insurance for Home Care Physicians
We Protect Home Care Physicians
You’ve chosen a career in a thriving health care specialty. The home health care field is one of the fastest growing segments in medicine as many elderly in need of medical care aren’t able to transition to nursing homes or assisted living facilities and are constrained to living and receiving care at home.
As the number of homebound patients and demand for Home Care Physicians continues to grow, so do the liabilities associated with providing in-home care.
Sadly, hundreds of malpractice claims are made by elderly patients and their families every year—and they’re not just claims from incidents that occur in nursing homes. Practitioners caring for homebound patients are equally at risk. Families of loved ones who have suffered an undesirable outcome can be quick to sue if they believe the physician and/or care team was negligent or acted wrongly.
Essential Coverage for Malpractice Claims
Your best protection against the risk of malpractice or sexual harassment claims is a personal Home Care Physicians Liability Insurance policy—it’s essential coverage every home care physician should have.
The costs of defending a malpractice claim are substantial—a personal Professional Liability policy from Lockton Affinity protects your financial well-being by covering defense costs and reimbursement for lost wages, and pays any settlement costs you may be liable for (up to your policy limit). And with a personal policy issued in your name, you’re covered no matter where you work, and with limits and coverage that ensure you’re fully protected.
It’s common for health care professionals to be covered under an employer-sponsored insurance policy, but be cautious…these policies don’t always provide the liability limits home care physicians need to be adequately insured.
You’ve worked hard to establish your career in the field of home care medicine. Don’t let the adverse effects of a claim against you threaten the end of your career—secure up to $4,000,000 of aggregate Professional Liability Insurance today.
