Consulting Services Endorsement
Do you have all the coverage that you need for your non-medical activities?
More and more often, nursing professionals are participating in educational and consulting activities in addition to - or instead of - direct patient care. However, did you know these activities (listed below) may not be covered under your current Professional Liability insurance policy?
- Speaking at seminars
- Providing expert testimony
- Rendering advice in your area of specialization
- Legal consultation
Like hands-on patient care, these activities carry unique legal risks. Even providing information or advice to a large number of patients or caregivers may be increasing your exposure to the risk of a lawsuit.
By adding the Consulting Services Liability Endorsement to your professional liability policy, you'll be covered for lawsuits resulting from advice, testimony or consulting you provide as a licensed nursing professional. (If you are managing a patient's total care; developing, assessing and coordination treatment plans; or conducting utilization review, call today for information on our Case Management endorsement 1-800-982-9491.)
This coverage is available to you whether you are full-time, part-time, employed or self-employed and is only $25 a year.
To add the Consulting Services Liability Endorsement to your coverage, simply download the request form and return it to NSO within 30 days of your application, along with your payment of $25. If you have any questions about the endorsement or want to know if it is right for you, please call our Customer Service Center at 1-800-247-1500, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. ET.
Please note: This additional coverage is not available to healthcare aides, technicians or technologists.
