The Allen Thomas Group is helping healthcare providers navigate the complexities of business insurance for healthcare professionals to protect their practice from injury claims and unexpected facility damages.
The company’s medical insurance specialists assist healthcare providers in understanding the myriad options available to them, how these options relate to their business risks, and help them strengthen their first line of defense against said risks. The Allen Thomas Group can provide various insurance coverage options such as professional liability (also referred to as errors and omissions insurance), general liability insurance, business owner’s policy, workers’ compensation insurance, commercial auto insurance, and cyber liability coverage.
Professional liability insurance protects healthcare businesses against claims of professional negligence or malpractice, making it an integral component of insurance. If a patient files a suit alleging negligence on the part of the medical services provider, professional liability insurance would provide coverage for legal fees, settlements, and judgments awarded against them. It can also aid pharmacists when dispensing medication to a patient who experiences an adverse reaction.
General liability insurance protects healthcare professionals against potential liability claims from third parties, including bodily injuries, property damages, and advertising injuries. It also provides protection in case a patient slips and falls at a medical office and sustains injuries, with medical costs and legal expenses related to any claims being covered by it.
“You have to perform a thorough risk analysis to know what kind of protections you need,” says the spokesperson for The Allen Thomas Group. “Healthcare is an inherently dynamic field where practitioners are vulnerable to potential liabilities and financial risks. For example, a recent survey found that 31% of healthcare providers experience at least one liability claim in their careers, with an average settlement reaching close to $400,000. So, knowing the facts of the industry you are in, it is paramount that you assess the business insurance coverages available to you.”
Healthcare providers also need to know their policy’s key inclusions and exclusions when searching for suitable coverage. For example, while comprehensive liability insurance includes coverage for malpractice claims and safeguards providers against lawsuits related to medical errors or negligence, it excludes claims arising from intentional harm caused by staff members. An experienced insurance company, such as The Allen Thomas Group, can help bring such exclusions to light and ensure its clients have all the potential gaps in coverage taken care of.
“At the Allen Thomas Group,” says the spokesperson, “we conduct thorough research and comparison between various insurance providers and have relationships with the best insurance carriers. We prioritize those who specialize in healthcare coverage as they better understand your unique risks and challenges within this industry.”
