Berxi Malpractice Insurance: Key Features

Here are some noteworthy features of our nursing malpractice insurance:

  • Legal defense outside the limits of liability
    • This means that money spent on your defense won’t be deducted from your
      insurance limits — so if you have a $1 million limit, you’ll still have $1
      million to pay for any settlements or damages.
  • Consent to settle
    • This means that we won't settle a claim without your consent.
  • Costs to defend a board action or investigation against you
  • $0 deductibles
  • Flexible insurance limits based on your needs
  • Convenient payment plans for select policies
  • 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.
  • Customizable tail coverage options for customers with claims-made policies

Yes, we cover you if you work in different cities and states. On the application, simply select the state in which you primarily practice. Your Berxi policy follows you across all 50 states (and Washington, DC), so work performed outside the state where you primarily practice will be covered under your policy.

Yes. Under your Berxi insurance policy, you’re covered for your part-time teaching at a community college/university or healthcare facility while you practice.
