Malpractice Insurance for Podiatrists

Medical Malpractice Insurance Quotes from Every Major Carrier

Understanding Podiatrist malpractice insurance.

Malpractice insurance for Podiatrists is inexpensive when compared to other medical specialties, but that doesn’t mean the profession doesn’t face its own unique set of liability risks or that there are no cost savings to be found by working with an experienced medical malpractice insurance agent.

Podiatrists have long served a healthcare niche, but the numbers of patients seeking their help has been on the uptick. In addition to treating foot ailments such as ulcers, fractures, and deformity as well as skin or nail diseases, they are becoming more involved in treating symptoms of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

It’s no secret that America is experiencing an obesity epidemic, and that epidemic carries an increase in diabetes diagnoses. More than 65,000 lower limbs are amputated annually due to complications from diabetes, but by involving a Podiatrist in the treatment of the disease, the risk of amputation can be reduced by as much as 85 percent. With an emphasis placed on preventative care by the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (“ObamaCare”), working with a Podiatrist in the early stages of diabetes treatment continues to grow.

There has traditionally been one dominant insurer for podiatrists’ medical liability risks, but during the past several years, several new insurers have entered the market.
