What does medical malpractice insurance include?

Medical malpractice coverage is for legal claims arising from allegations of negligence and malpractice. Berxi offers a variety of malpractice insurance options that include flexible limits of liability coverage and convenient payment plans. The most common coverages provided by Berxi are:

Healthcare Industry Coverage

  • Medical malpractice coverage

    Protection against claims of negligence or mistakes which cause bodily harm to another.

  • Defense counsel

    If a covered claim is filed against you, this provides a lawyer for you with experience in medical malpractice. It also pays for related defense cost (e.g., lawyer fees, court fees, expert witness costs).

  • Worldwide coverage

    Your policy travels with you, as long as the claim is brought against you in the United States (including US territories or possessions).

  • Good Samaritan coverage

    If you provide medical care to someone outside your primary work setting and that person files a claim against you, your policy would still apply.

  • Sexual misconduct/abuse

    If (non-criminal) allegations of sexual misconduct are made against you, this provides counsel to represent you and pay defense costs - unless or until the sexual misconduct or abuse is determined to have occurred.

  • Defendant expense benefit/deposition representation
  • Reputation coverage

What are insurance 'limits' and how do they work?

Medical malpractice insurance limits look like what you may see on your car insurance policy but are a little different. Med mal limits break down into two parts shown below:

Example: $1 Million/$3 Million

  • The 1st number ($1 million) is the amount of money your policy will pay for each claim.
  • The 2nd number ($3 million) is the total amount your policy will cover you for each policy year.
