The terms medical professional liability insurance and medical malpractice insurance can and will be used interchangeably. There is no difference between the two terms. Medical professional liability insurance or medical malpractice insurance is a type of casualty policy purchased to protect many of the physician and licensed health care providers listed above. The policy will, at minimum, protect the named insured from claims related to direct patient care and the expense to defend them. However, the medical professional liability policy is very complex and extremely important to your practice.
A medical professional liability insurance policy can have many coverage components and these components can vary from policy to policy and company to company. Therefore, when a physician, healthcare provider or administrator is looking to purchase a new errors & omissions policy or renew an existing policy, it is important to partner with an experienced medical malpractice insurance professional who can guide you through.
You just found out you can acquire the malpractice insurance policy you need, but it may be with a non-admitted carrier. What does that mean? Should this be a concern? Although the term may imply coverage with a "lessor" carrier not stable enough to handle your malpractice insurance risks, but this is not always the case.
Desert Mountain Insurance Services has access to many nationwide and local admitted professional liability carriers and will always approach those carriers first when seeking professional liability coverage. However, when an applicant does not meet the admitted carrier's underwriting guidelines we then have many non-admitted carriers to work with and obtain a quote.
An admitted medical malpractice insurance carrier follows guidelines set forth by the Department of Insurance in that state. These carriers are required to file their policy forms, underwriting guidelines and rates with the Department of Insurance in the state(s) they are offering coverage and obtain approval. These carriers cannot deviate from the approved forms, guidelines and rates. In addition, admitted carriers are also part of the state guarantee fund which provides protection for policyholders in the event their carrier becomes insolvent.
A non-admitted medical malpractice insurance carrier does not have to file their forms, guidelines and rates with the Department of Insurance. These carriers retain flexibility to price each risk according to it's specific exposure, including procedures, practice type, past claims and board issues. Without non-admitted carriers, potential high loss risks, loss histories or specialty risks would be uninsurable. Non-admitted carriers are not part of the state guarantee fund.

Working with Physicians, Dentists, Podiatrists, Chiropractors and other health care practitioners on their medical malpractice insurance is what drives our day. Therefore, we strive to find comprehensive insurance solutions for medical offices, such as professional liability, business insurance, workers compensation, cyber liability, health insurance, errors & omissions insurance, as well as other protection that meets their needs.
When a new customers call us to find professional liability insurance (aka: malpractice insurance), we immediately take action to determine their coverage needs. They may only require professional liability as they are an independent contractor or joining an existing group. However, for those that may be opening a new practice, looking for alternative options or looking to expand the protection of their existing coverage, we have many solutions for them to consider.
Often times applicants will only consider one insurance company as their sole option. Also, at times they will go direct to that insurance company. This can be a successful approach when their application is approved and coverage for all services and/or risks are met.
However, if you take this approach and receive a declination for malpractice insurance or any other coverage, what do you do now? And now time is up as you need to complete the credentialing process and start treating patients.
