As we take time this week to appreciate these medical professionals, we also should recognize that, as the number of Physician Assistants across the country increases, so does the number of medical malpractice claims against them.
Woodbridge, NJ (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
Every day, the people behind MedEdge insurance solutions work as personal advocates for Physician Assistants, providing them with specialized Professional Liability coverage. Today, MedEdge is proud to salute these medical professionals as part of Physician Assistants Appreciation Week, which runs October 6-12.
“As we take time this week to appreciate these medical professionals, we also should recognize that, as the number of Physician Assistants across the country increases, so does the number of medical malpractice claims against them,” says David Springer, President of NIP Programs. Springer adds “That’s why MedEdge would like to remind Physician Assistants to take time this week to evaluate their professional liability coverage.”
According to Springer, while Physician Assistants are often covered under their employer’s medical malpractice policy, they may not be fully protected when there is a medical malpractice claim. In addition, most employer policies are not portable, so the many Physician Assistants who work more than one job may not be protected in all their workplaces.
MedEdge is a Three-In-One Protection Plan for Physician Assistants that protects their interests, defends their reputation and livelihood, and rewards them with discounts for a good track record. Offered through NIP Programs – a division of NIP Group, Inc. – MedEdge is a budget-friendly entry into personal insurance coverage for Physician Assistants, with coverage options that adjust as their careers grows.
