Venturing into a career as a healthcare professional means you’ve dedicated your life to helping others. While your first instinct may be to think of your patients, it’s important that you also keep yourself and your practice front and center; especially when it comes to safeguarding your career and setting yourself up for a successful future.
This starts with securing a professional liability policy. Having your own policy not only ensures that your interests come first, it gives you the confidence and peace of mind to build your career knowing that you are supported by industry leading insurance products and services. It’s not just a premium or a plan, it’s an investment in you, your career, and your future.
You’re probably aware that an individual professional liability policy can provide coverage in the event of a lawsuit, deposition, subpoena request, and/or licensing agency complaint.* However, you may have overlooked one of the most significant benefits of having your own policy: portability.
An individual professional liability policy through HPSO goes with you, wherever you go.*
So does your coverage.

The portability of our policies not only ensures that you have coverage wherever you go*, but our policies are designed with the individual healthcare provider in mind. HPSO understands that healthcare workers across a variety of fields may want to create more flexible work schedules so that they can spend more time with family, work at a variety of different facilities, offer in-home care, or get out into the local community and volunteer. Having your own policy means you are not dependent on your employer-based policy. It allows you to have the career you want on your own terms.
An individual professional liability policy not only enables you to make the insurance choices for your career, it also offers a degree of coverage that an employer-based plan may not. For example, even if you aren’t working outside your current employer's facility, as a healthcare professional, you may be asked to volunteer your time. What may seem like a harmless conversation actually has the potential to result in exposure to lawsuits or allegations of malpractice if an incident occurs as the result of your advice. If you’re covered under your own professional liability insurance policy, that coverage may be portable*, and therefore extend to this type of situation, for professional services within the scope of your practice. In short, safeguarding your career is a 24/7 job, and an employer-based plan typically works part time.
A policy through HPSO is focused on you, whether that means providing coverage in the event of a lawsuit, guiding you through a deposition, or offering peace of mind when you’re off the clock or out of the office*. In addition, it not only helps protect your career. It helps to safeguard your future.
…Wherever that future may be.
