Protect the career and reputation you’ve worked so hard for.
Medical malpractice (or “med mal”) insurance is a type of professional liability insurance that protects you in your role as a healthcare practitioner if someone alleges that you’ve been negligent or made a mistake in some way. It protects you even if the claim against you is false.
Plain and simple: Financial security, our commitment to our customers, and competitive pricing.
Cinch is part of Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI), which offers financial stability, professionalism, and core values that center around a dedication to customer satisfaction. We have the added advantage of being able to sell directly to our customers—cutting out the brokers and middlemen—which allows us to reduce the cost of your insurance policy by about 20%*.
We also offer a simplified, same-day digital experience. Your coverage can start the same day you apply, and your online account is available to you 24 / 7.
If there’s ever a claim filed against you, we bring efficiency and transparency to all aspects of the claims-handling process. At its core, handling claims is about people—and our people bring skill and compassion to the process to protect your interests.
Here’s what you can expect to get with a Cinch medical malpractice policy**:
Insurance limits are the amount of money for which you’re covered per claim/per policy term (which is usually one year). Your limits will often come as two separate, but related, figures, such as $1 million/$3 million. The first limit ($1 million in this example) is the amount of money that your policy will pay for each claim. The second limit ($3 million in this example) is an aggregate of how much money your policy will cover you for each policy year.
As part of your medical malpractice policy with Cinch, any legal representation would be paid by us and would not draw down the above limits. This is called “outside the limits of liability” and is very helpful if you need to have a trial and pay a settlement.
Typically, people choose limits of liability ranging from $250,000 to $2 million, based on the complexities of their job and the state in which they work. As you go through the “get a quote” process, we’ll highlight the most common limits of liability based on these types of factors.
As with the amount of coverage you’ll need, the cost of a medical malpractice policy depends on a number of factors, including your particular medical profession, years of experience, how often you work, and any previous claims filed against you. A nursing student, for example, may pay as little as $14 a year, while a nurse anesthetist could pay over $1,000 a year.
Cinch offers competitive pricing, mostly because we let you buy direct. We cut out the middleman, which means that you could save up to 20% in fees—and, in some cases, even more***.
And if you get a quote for a lower-priced policy, we want to know about it.

Working in the medical industry, you need protection from actions brought against you by professional boards and from lawsuits brought by any third party—including patients, their families, and even your peers—that allege malpractice. If someone brings a lawsuit against you because they claim that you made an error that caused them harm, your medical malpractice insurance would step in to protect you.
In these kinds of situations, you want to feel the relief of knowing that a reliable partner has your back and will support you with its resources until you’re comfortable with the solution. The team at Cinch knows that we can be that partner.
