Malpractice Insurance Requirements Changing in 2021

Beginning March 1, 2021, we are increasing the minimum amounts of malpractice (professional liability) insurance that you are required to carry to meet our credentialing and recredentialing requirements. 

This change affects health care professionals in 13 states:, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, South Carolina and Wyoming. 

Please review the information below and ensure you adjust your insurance coverage, if needed. We will ask for proof of insurance during your normal recredentialing cycle.
