What does the policy cost?
When looking at price, there are several things to consider. It is important to look at the value you will receive for your policy dollar.
When it comes to protecting your reputation, you don't want to cut corners. Instead, you want the best malpractice insurance available. Moreover, it's important that you receive excellent service whether you're calling about a payment, policy details, a claim, or for advice about a troubling situation.
Protecting your good name
The value of your malpractice coverage becomes apparent if you become subject to a malpractice claim. Because the chiropractic profession is unique, it's important that your legal counsel and claims representatives understand chiropractic and are experienced in putting together a chiropractic defense. When your reputation is on the line, you want the best representation and coverage possible.

There is no substitute for experience
It's important to look for experience defending chiropractors and in-depth expertise on the subject of chiropractic malpractice. The support of a professional claims staff means you may be able to receive guidance even before you face a claim.
In addition, your coverage will provide a better value if it includes broad scope of practice coverage, a true consent-to-settle provision, and supplemental coverages such as professional discipline and other governmental proceedings at no additional charge.
On-going customer service support is vital
One of the things you're paying for in a malpractice policy is service. It can make your life easier to call one place whether you're calling about your policy, a claim or simply have general questions.
