Default Medical malpractice insurance

Hi everyone,

Do you guys have any suggestions about what company I should pick ? Or any advice on malpractice insurance ? I will be doing three 4-week externships next year. I know externship companies can provide it but they usually charge a lot for that service - I am trying to reduce the costs ! Thank you

I was quoted about 450 dollars by cunninggroup for 1 month and about 490 dollars by academicgroup. Sucks, but have to bite the bullet I guess.

It seems expensive ! What are you planning on doing - brain surgery ? It is true I'm not fully aware of the price as I have just started looking this up but the quote I got from a private (externship) company was $200 cheaper (for a 4 week cycle) if I had my own insurance. So I assumed that the "real" cost for malpractice insurance was below that.

Critical care, I guess it's a high risk place. Or I didn't inspire them any confidence in my skills . What's the externship company that quoted you that!?

go with Nexus Insurance, was the cheapest I could find, even cheaper than academicgroup. They quoted me around $616 for 6 months of Insurance. So I guess it's cheaper than what was mentioned in one of the previous posts here.
