Professional Liability plan trusted by more than 1,000 podiatrists nationwide
General Southwest has been a preferred provider for podiatrist professional liability since 1998. The program, through Coverys, an A-rated insurance company, is specifically designed to meet your needs. In addition to medical malpractice coverage, our services include risk management and CME to help you control loss, reduce the risk of medical error and enhance patient safety.
This plan also includes protection for cyber liability and regulatory coverage, including billing errors (actual or alleged) and violations stemming from HIPAA, EMTALA, and STARK proceedings. Standard limits are $50,000; we offer the affordable option of increasing this coverage to $1,000,000.
Other coverage highlights:
Consent to Settle – Coverys will not settle a claim or suit without the named insured’s written consent, where approved.
