Hospice Insurance Coverage & Benefits

Glatfelter Healthcare Practice has tailored the following coverage specifically for hospices:

Professional Liability

Referred to as malpractice or E&O insurance, Glatfelter’s policy states: “We will pay those sums the insured becomes legally obligated to pay as damages because of injury arising out of a medical incident.” The policy further defines “medical incident” as any act, error or omission in the rendering or failure to render professional healthcare services by you or anyone for whose professional healthcare services you are legally responsible, with “professional healthcare services” being broadly defined.
