CAP members should consider this coverage to protect against liability for services provided to out-of-state patients, including those seen via telemedicine. You may not realize that you need extra medical professional liability coverage if you are providing services to patients who reside outside of California. While CAP’s medical malpractice coverage includes telemedicine coverage for patients in California, CAP Agency can help you fill in any coverage gaps for your out-of-state patients.

EPLI provides essential coverage every practice should have to protect against the costs associated with employment-related lawsuits.

Members who take on non-clinical roles beyond the medical practice need to have this essential coverage. If you review medical records for insurance companies, engage in non-profit work, evaluate criminal cases, or perform peer review, credentialing, or utilization management for a third party, you need extra protection. Good coverage can protect you from the costs associated with claims of negligence and errors, even if meritless, that may occur during these activities.

CAP members can access unique liability coverage to ensure corporate entity protection. Many physicians serve as a director or officer on the board of a hospital, nonprofit, or other commercial venture. If so, you should make sure that you are properly protected should there be allegations of negligent management. A good policy covers both the costs of legal defense and any verdicts against you that impact your personal assets. In many cases, physicians in these roles are responsible for obtaining their own policy.
