Medical Providers Office Package
 
Office package carriers can often focus on property and general liability coverage rather than the increased exposure of Employment Practices Liability (EPL) faced by medical offices.  Doctors and dentists face higher valued EPL claims due to the higher incomes of their employees who can make allegations of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation and failure to pay overtime.  In addition, they encounter discrimination and harassment allegations from third parties such as patients and vendors.  While it is convenient to put General Liability, Property and EPL all on one medical office policy, it is important that the EPL limits and coverage match the higher exposure!
 
Our Office Package includes:

  • $250,000 patient abuse and molestation defense cost sublimit

By writing one policy, it helps the medical office transfer the unique risk
that comes from operating their offices and treating their patients.
