What is the difference between malpractice insurance and professional liability insurance?

These terms are both interchangeable. Malpractice insurance is a liability insurance specifically designed to protect medical professionals.

Does having my own individual professional liability insurance policy make me a more likely target for a lawsuit?

Absolutely not. In fact your insurance status is not discovered until you have been named in a lawsuit. At that point you are ALWAYS better off having your own individual liability protection to defend you against any allegations.

Does my employer’s professional liability insurance cover me?

Most employers do provide some level of malpractice insurance for their employees. The only way to know for certain is to ask for a certificate of insurance every year to confirm that you are a "named insured." Millions of medical professionals purchase personal professional liability insurance, also known as medical malpractice insurance, protection in addition to what their employer provides. Coverage that is portable from job to job, protects your license, your personal assets and financial future is ALWAYS the best option. CM&F offers both individual liability insurance and group liability insurance.

I’m starting my own company. Do you have a policy that will cover my company for malpractice?

Absolutely. We have liability coverage for individuals, sole-proprietors, clinics, schools and groups. Get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
