HPSO Welcomes North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants Members
Dear NCAPA Member,
In part, the mission of the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA) is to represent and serve physician assistants (PAs) statewide, and to promote safe practice among its members. An important component of a safe practice is to have appropriate professional liability insurance in place.
Today, you are faced with many new opportunities and challenges in the field of healthcare - but one word of caution. As I'm sure you are well aware, we live in litigious times. Lawsuits are on the rise and as PAs, you are as vulnerable to being sued as any other healthcare provider, no matter how much education or training you may have had.
That's why we are pleased to let you know about the opportunity to apply for the NCAPA Preferred Provider Professional Liability Insurance Program.
First, it provides critical security and peace of mind. This NCAPA Preferred Provider Program is personal protection that goes beyond the limitations of most employer-sponsored programs. This program protects you 24-hours a day, on the job, outside your primary place of employment, and even if you change jobs.
Second, the program is offered by Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO), an organization that specializes in administering insurance coverage to over 1 million healthcare providers nationwide. They offer outstanding service to their customers, understand the needs of our profession, and do all they can to provide prompt and courteous service when you need it.
Third, we believe the program is an excellent value. Its comprehensive scope provides the level of coverage we feel is important today in light of legal costs and court settlements, yet it remains very affordable.
Coverage Features Include:
I can't stress enough the importance of having your own professional liability insurance today.
