Malpractice Insurance

  1. 0
    Hey y'all, I'm going into my 2nd year as an ICU nurse... I'm currently insured by NSO, and I paid like $200 or $250 last year for the insurance. I just now got a statement from them saying that another year of coverage would be $250. The coverage is for 100k per claim, to an aggregate of 300k.

    I called my mom, who is also an RN... she was shocked and said she pays like 80 bucks a year for 1 million/6 million aggregate. I've also been looking around here and people have been saying the same.

    Anybody else experiencing similar? I don't know what's going on!

    I am an LVN insured with NSO and I have one mill/six mill. You need to give them a call.

    I have the highest coverage you can get through them, and I don't pay nearly that amount. Call them up, something isn't right with your billing.

    Do you live in Texas?

    When I moved here from the West Coast NSO wanted over twice the rate.

    I dropped them because I was in a low risk job.

    I did find another insurer with a good reputation with much better rates though.

    It may be a matter of where you live and practice. Rates and coverage offered vary among states. Definitely contact them directly and ask about it.

    It never occurred to me that geographic location would influence the rates. Of course it would. I sometimes just live in my own little world. How nice that the internet opens my eyes for me every once in a while.

    Yup, same as automobile, homeowner's, pretty much every other kind of insurance ...

    If you're an AACN member they offer a great plan through Marsh.
