Why do physician assistants need business insurance?

Working as a physician assistant (PA) can be a rewarding experience, but it also leaves you vulnerable to risks. Sometimes your employer's insurance, or that of a temporary agency, may not protect you. Business insurance provides peace of mind and risk management against lawsuits and injuries that might otherwise overwhelm your small business.
