Professional Liability Insurance
Many changes in the healthcare industry have increased personal exposure to an allegation of negligence. And, whether or not the allegation is valid, students need to be able to protect themselves and their families from the financial consequences of a lawsuit. The Student Academy of Audiology has endorsed the professional liability insurance program offered through Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO). The Academy reviewed many programs before endorsing this plan and we selected this program because of the plan's many benefits, affordable rates, and their commitment to superior service.
This professional liability insurance program through Healthcare Providers Service Organization (HPSO) is designed to protect your assets and cover your expenses in the event of a suit being brought against you for malpractice. This plan is underwritten by CNA and is designed to meet the unique needs of today's audiologists and student audiologists during their externships.
CNA has been a leader in providing professional liability insurance coverage for over 30 years and is rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best, Inc., one of the nation's leading independent insurance analysts.
