Is professional liability insurance and malpractice coverage the same thing?
No. Medical malpractice is only for medical incidents. Professional liability covers medical malpractice as well as the business premises.
Physicians need to make sure when submitting the CMS 855S to attach proof of general liability insurance.
Reminder: Binders are not an acceptable proof of insurance. Be sure to attach a copy of the declaration pages or certificate of insurance with the NSC listed as the certificate holder.
