Medical malpractice insurance is one of the largest expenses to a doctor. As a result, some have chosen to "go bare." To “go bare” means that a doctor practices medicine without professional liability insurance. This short-sighted decision could mean financial ruin should a patient file a claim against you. Although Florida does not require medical malpractice insurance (under certain conditions), uninsured doctors face undeniable legal risks that can ultimately be career-ending. A recent case in Aventura awarded a man $1 million dollars in damages over a botched liposuction procedure. The doctor, who practiced bare, had to declare bankruptcy.
Doctors who practice “bare” mistakenly believe that a lack of insurance coverage means fewer claims and even less severity. However, there is no evidence to support this claim. Additionally, some "bare" physicians think that you cannot be sued if you do not have insurance - this is false! A doctor without insurance can absolutely be sued by a patient in Florida.
A medical malpractice policy pays for the related cost to defend you and your practice up to your policy limits. Covered items would include court fees, defense costs, and any resulting damages or settlements - in the event you are sued. Don't take the chance to practice medicine bare - your career and livelihood is just not worth it!
If you need to buy medical malpractice insurance, MedMal Direct specializes in this important product. Professional Liability is all we do! Working with a Broker is like playing whisper down the lane with your business. A Broker simply shops your deal with various insurance companies and takes a fee. Instead, you can work directly with the company writing and insuring your policy – MedMal Direct! This allows Physicians to leverage lower cost structures and higher efficiencies for the best possible policy! The process starts with the savings, but it continues with the ease of use in customer service, risk management tools, practice management tips in our monthly newsletter, and – if it ever happens – a collaborative claims process. MedMal Direct believes in a customer-focused approach that benefits Physicians.
Simply put, Direct is Better.
