Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions. We have answers. (It's why we're here.)

Why do I need an individual professional liability policy? Won't my employer's insurance policy cover me?

Professional liability insurance help safeguards you against allegations of malpractice. While your employer may provide coverage for you, it may not be enough to cover you in all cases. Your employer's policy is designed to preserve the employers' needs and interests first.

I'm starting my own company. Do you have a policy that will cover my company for malpractice?

Yes. NSO offers professional liability insurance to nursing firms, providing many of the same coverages our individual program offers. Our coverage can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your firm. Get more information on our affordable liability coverage for nursing firms.

I work for several different employers. Will that affect my coverage or rate?

Not necessarily. The rate you pay is based on whether you are an individual or a business. If you're an individual, it also depends on whether you receive a W2 or 1099 tax form. Talk with a NSO representative for more information.
