  • What is Professional Liability insurance?

     

    Professional Liability Insurance protects you against covered claims arising from real or alleged errors or omissions, including negligence, in the course of your professional duties. Remember, legal defense and settlement costs are paid in addition to your limits of liability.

  • Doesn’t my employer provide me with Professional Liability coverage?

    While many employers (not all) will provide some professional liability coverage, chances are that coverage may have some serious gaps, including: 

    • Policy limits may not be high enough to protect you and all of your co-workers.
    • You may not be provided with coverage for lost wage reimbursement, licensing board hearing reimbursement, and defense costs.
    • You may not be covered outside of the workplace, such as when you engage in volunteer or part-time work.
    • You may not be covered for suits filed after you have terminated your employment.
  • What would having a personal Professional Liability Insurance Plan give me?

    In the event of a lawsuit, your own Professional Liability Insurance policy would: 

    • Provide you with your own attorney
    • Pay all reasonable costs incurred in the defense or investigation of a covered claim
    • Pay you for lost wages
    • Provide reimbursement if licensing board issues were involved
    • Pay court costs and settlements in addition to the limits of liability
  • Why should I consider an individual Professional Liability Insurance Plan from Mercer Consumer?

    All the plans offered by Mercer Consumer are tailored specifically for each profession to meet your unique needs.

    The Plan is administered by Mercer Consumer and is underwritten by Liberty Insurance Underwriters, Inc. Mercer Consumer has handled the insurance needs of individual healthcare professionals, schools, universities and associations since 1949. As a trusted name in the Professional Liability marketplace, Mercer Consumer has earned a reputation defined by superior products and quality service.

  • Am I eligible to purchase my medical professional liability with installments?

    Illinois Medical Professional Liability Law PA94-677, Senate Bill 475, requires insurers to implement a quarterly premium payment installment plan as prescribed by the Secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). 

    If you practice in the state of Illinois and your annual medical professional liability premium is above $500, please visit www.proliability.com/illinstall for information regarding installment payment options.
