Nephrology Medical Professional Liability Policies
If you are working in a nephrology group, there are a few important issues you should consider to reduce your overall cost of managing medical professional liability insurance.
The first issue is the matter of medical directorship. Nephrology groups will sometimes have responsibilities to serve as medical directors at dialysis centers (there are also medical foundations with ownership interests in dialysis centers.) Additionally, medical directors can present at outpatient clinics and hospitals.
Medical malpractice insurance policies normally carry a separate limit protecting the healthcare organization employees and non-medical doctor providers, these entity policies can extend and be endorsed to include coverage for medical director work.
