Why Do I Need Professional Liability Insurance if I work for an employer?
Although you work for an employer, you may need individual insurance for a few reasons.
A patient can file a claim directly against you as the individual, blame may be transferred to you, both you and your employer can have shared the blame, or your employer is not properly insured.
Having your own individual policy with My OT Insurance can help if any of these situations happen. If a claim is filed, and you are responsible for any of these reasons, you will have peace of mind knowing you are covered.
Am I a target for a lawsuit by having occupational therapy liability insurance?
In the event of a lawsuit, the attorney for the injured party names everyone involved in the patients care. They do not know who has liability insurance. Insurance contracts are private information that’s not publicized.
What’s the difference between Occurrence Form Coverage and Claims-Made Coverage?
Occurrence Form Coverage. A policy covering claims that arise out of damage or injury that took place during the policy period, regardless of when claims are made. Occurrence form coverage is considered the gold standard in the health and wellness industries as it covers you for an incident that occurred during the policy period, regardless if the policy is still active.
Claims-made policy. A policy providing coverage that is triggered when a claim is made against the insured during the policy period, regardless of when the wrongful act that gave rise to the claim took place. It is important to note that a claim made policy will not cover you unless the policy is active when the claim is made.
Is the policy in my name or my business' name?
It must be in the practitioner’s name. However, if you’re a sole proprietor, your business name will be covered. If you have a corporation, partnership, or work for a franchise, the business may be added as an additional insured.
