  1. I have brought it to HR/practice operations attention but they are very slow with things. Basically told me they need to get it approved by the president of our medical group first before they can add it to my previous policy. Which I do not understand why because we have been going to these outside hospitals for years and the encounters are billed through our medical group. There is another Nurse Practitioner I work with but she is under my Supervising Physician's own malpractice insurance, which I am now under as of last month. Why they did not put me under his malpractice insurance from the
  2. Thanks everyone for the advice. I should add that this outside hospital is only less than 5% of the patients I see for the year. Also when I go to the outside hospital. I generally only dictate the note for my supervising physician and then he signs off on the note (I don’t sign the note most of the time). So my odds of getting sued are pretty low. I also really like my job (even though HR is super disorganized) and I’m worried having a lawyer write a letter to my employer would probably affect the status of my current job? My main concerned about this whole situation is that the outside hospi
  3. Hi all, I am a Cardiology PA and have worked at my current position since April 2018. I am employed by a hospital, but also see Cardiology consults at other outside hospitals too. This is part of my job and I am not paid extra for this and therefore never considered it moonlighting. My supervising physician goes to these outside hospitals too. I was recently looking over my malpractice policy declaration page because it is about to expire and asked my office manager if this covers the outside hospital I see consults at. She did not know so I called the number on the declaration page and t
  4. Typically if it is a group policy, then employer would have to pay tail automatically right? However I once had a job that was also a group policy claims made and they made me pay for my own tail (2000 dollars). This is all just so confusing
  5. Is this for occurrence malpractice policy? That is a good price!
  6. I have it written in a email...guess I will save that email
  7. I am about to leave my current job that I was only at for 3 months. My employer says my malpractice insurance is a group claims-made policy. They said once the policy is terminated, tail will be purchased by the employer. Until then they will keep me as a "terminated schedule." They said I would be covered if anything happened during those 3 months I was there. Is there anything I need to get proof from my malpractice that tail is purchased or that I am still covered under the malpractice insurance even when I am not working there? I would hate to be sued one day and to find out I am not cover
  8. Do you purchase your own claims made policy or occurrence policy?
  9. I've heard it's a good idea for PAs to purchase their own policy for malpractice in addition to the malpractice insurance their employer supplies. I am thinking of doing this but what are the benefits? Any recommendations?

  11. Hi guys, I have been working in family medicine for around 10 months in Houston TX. It's around a 45 minute drive from my house both ways and I am getting a little burnt out from seeing 20 patients a day 5 days a week. I make 90k a year and have 3 weeks vacation and 1 week CME (which I can use as vacation). 401k after one year, no health insurance (i dont really need it since I am under my husband), malpractice without tail. I have always seen myself just doing family medicine for a year, and then going into another field like dermatology. I was recently offered a position at a allergy
  12. Well right now my supervising physician sees the patient after me. I'm just confused why they are even being put on my schedule if I'm not signed up with medicare. Wasn't sure if this is a normal thing
