Berxi Nursing Malpractice Insurance: Key Features
Here are some noteworthy features of our nursing malpractice insurance for RNs & LPNs/LVNs:
- Occurrence and claims-made policy options
- Don’t know the difference between the two? No worries! We wrote an article that breaks it all down for you.
- Legal defense outside the limits of liability

- Consent to settle
- This means that we won't settle a claim without your consent.
- $0 deductibles
- Flexible insurance limits based on your needs
- Convenient payment plans for select policies
- Customizable tail coverage options for customers with claims-made policies

Do You Provide Coverage for Me While I Go Back to Nursing School?
Yes, we do. There are two ways to do this. If you’d like coverage as an RN and as a student, you can simply purchase an RN policy and we can add a student endorsement to it. But if you prefer coverage only as a student, we also offer a variety of student policies that start at about $14 per year.
