Why do nurse anesthetists need business insurance?

CRNAs take on big risks every time they anesthetize a patient, and your employer may provide limited coverage—or no coverage at all. Business insurance covers malpractice claims and other costly incidents, so you can focus on providing excellent patient care without worry.

FAQs about nurse anesthetist business insurance

Why do CRNAs need malpractice insurance coverage?

There are several reasons why CRNAs should carry malpractice insurance:

  • Your state may require it. For example, all advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) in Florida, including CRNAs, must carry malpractice insurance.
  • Your employer may require it. The healthcare facility you work for may require you to carry malpractice coverage, even if it's not required by state law.
  • Your employer's coverage may be limited. Your employer might provide coverage that is effective only in certain situations or for smaller claims. Additionally, it's possible that the employer's lawyers will place their interests above your own in court.

Fortunately, it's possible to find affordable CRNA malpractice insurance. Insureon's easy online application lets you compare quotes to find the best possible rate. You can customize your coverage options to match your specific needs and your budget.

What type of coverage is malpractice insurance?

Medical malpractice insurance is usually a claims-made policy instead of an occurrence-based policy. That means it only provides coverage for claims filed while the policy is active.

It's important to maintain continuous coverage with this type of insurance, as a lapse could leave you vulnerable to legal defense costs. You may want to set a retroactive date for coverage, which provides protection for work done in the past up to a specific date.

In general, lapses in insurance coverage can lead to an increase in your premium, as insurers may charge more for stopping and restarting coverage.
