Your own individual coverage protects you beyond the limits of your employer provided plan.
With today's high costs of a lawsuit, professional liability insurance is a must for all healthcare providers. But counting solely on your employer's program may not provide all the coverage you need. Now with coverage through HPSO you can protect your individual interests. Liability limits protect you solely and are not shared with other employees.

Protects you on and off the job, even if you change jobs
Coverage through HPSO protects you for incidents that occur on the job. But, you're also covered off-duty as well. For example, care or advice you offer to a friend or family member, emergency care or Good Samaritan assistance you offer may result in a claim against you. Your employer's plan may provide no protection after hours. Coverage through HPSO protects you 24 hours a day. And your coverage remains in force if you change jobs, or even during a period of unemployment.
Affordable Group Rates
Through HPSO you can now add quality protection at an affordable cost, thanks to the combined buying power of over 1,000,000 healthcare providers nationwide.
