Malpractice Insurance for Pharmacists

As a pharmacist, you worked hard to get where you’re at today and an unforeseen disciplinary action or malpractice lawsuit can have consequences on both your career and financial future. Chances are your employer may offer insurance coverage, but there are oftentimes limitations and you are not fully protected. Having your own personal insurance, designed to put your interests first, is the best way to incorporate personal risk management and peace of mind.

Why You Need Your Own Professional Liability Insurance

Consider the likely gaps in your employer’s malpractice insurance that are leaving your career exposed:

  • Claims-made insurance may not cover suits filed after you have terminated your employment
  • Policy limits that may not be high enough to protect you and all your co-workers
  • Coverage that may not include lost wage reimbursement or licensing board hearing reimbursement
  • Coverage that likely doesn’t extend outside of the workplace, such as when you engage in volunteer, moonlighting or self-employed activities

Check out the Coverage Details tab to learn how a personal professional liability plan from Proliability can cover these gaps with superior coverage at an affordable rate.
