Norcal Mutual Insurance Company, a leading Medical Malpractice Insurance Carrier, has issued a statement on their efforts to support policyholders offering medical services in Haiti. Norcal will extend malpractice insurance coverage to physicians and surgeons who wish to travel to Haiti to provide volunteer charitable medical services. Coverage will be provided for claims instituted in the United States, its territories and possessions, Puerto Rico or Canada. Coverage will also be extended for endorsed healthcare extenders (such as Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistants) with the policyholders consent, limited to services rendered within their scope of training.
Presidio Insurance Solutions extends our deepest sympathies to the people affected by the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Our prayers are with the survivors, aid workers, and all the families and friends coping with the aftermath of this catastrophe.
