Most physicians and health care providers know that coverage for liability claims as a result of treating patients is essential…a no-brainer. In fact, the AMA reports that by the age of 55, more than 65% of physicians have been the target of at least one lawsuit. Factor into this equation the time, cost and heartache, and most professionals agree the coverage is well worth it. Yet, the demands of a physician’s schedule can make it difficult to navigate the nuances of medical malpractice insurance for doctors in Florida and throughout the nation.
