As an occupational therapist, you work hard to protect and care for your patients, but you can’t care for your patients unless you take care of yourself as well.
Cinch™ offers industry-leading medical malpractice insurance for OTs with the speed and ease that you’ve come to expect from modern, technology-focused companies. The efficiency we’ve built into the process means lower prices. (On average, we save customers 20%.)* You can get a quick quote and buy coverage that’s effective today, or up to a year in advance. And since Cinch is as a part of Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI), you can feel secure knowing that you’re partnering with a company that’s focused on the long term.
At Cinch, we’re working to create a better insurance experience by offering affordable coverage and outstanding service. Here are a few things that set us apart:
Simply put: You could get sued, or you could be sued in a group claim involving the doctors, nurses, and therapists who were working with one patient. Ultimately, you want to protect yourself and your career. With medical malpractice insurance in place, you’ll get a team to protect your best interests and insurance for the expenses that result from your defense and any damages that need to be paid.
You should consider having your own insurance policy to protect your interests. Even if your employer provides coverage, here are some important things to consider:
Having your own policy can help you feel more comfortable if a claim is filed against you. With your own policy, you’ll have access to your own legal representation, and the resources of the policy aren’t shared amongst multiple insureds.
Medical malpractice insurance policies for OTs start at about $150 a year. However, the price of your particular policy will depend on a number of different factors, including—but not limited to—where you work, how often you work, and how many years of experience you have.**
The best way to get an accurate idea of what your policy would cost is by filling out our quick online application to receive a quote. The process takes a minute or two, and—if you choose to purchase—your policy can go into effect any day you’d like, including today.
Yes, your policy does follow you. If you practice in more than one state, here’s what you’ll need to do: On your application, simply select the state in which you primarily practice or do the majority of your work. Your Cinch policy follows you across all 50 states (and Washington D.C.), so work performed outside of your primary state will be covered under your policy.**
