Our program is healthier
Our Deluxe Professional Office Program for Physicians gives you a stronger dosage of insurance
protection than programs offered by many other companies. Our package includes the special
coverages you need for your business, plus you can add plenty of optional coverages and
related life insurance protection. The result is a unique business owners package that is
very good for your practice.
If youd like to learn more about this special program, contact an agent in your area. Or, get in touch with our office nearest you.
With our physicians program, we give you exceptional built-in features, such as:
- Business property off premises All your medical and office equipment and supplies
and other business personal property is covered while it is in transport to and from your
office, at home or at other locations away from your premises.
- Replacement cost coverage for property of others If property in your care is
damaged or destroyed in your office, youre insured at replacement cost rather
than actual cash value. The coverage pays, regardless of fault, up to your business
personal property limit and applies to anything from equipment you lease to personal
possessions of employees and patients.
- Hired and non-owned auto coverage As an employer, you can be held liable if one
of your full- or part-time employees is negligent while driving his or her vehicle on your
behalf-whether driving a patient home, transporting records from office to hospital,
making a bank deposit, or merely going out for sandwiches. Normally you must buy separate
coverage for this exposure, but we include it.
- Off-premises utility coverage If power failure temporarily knocks you out of
business, most insurance programs dont assist you. Ours pays for loss of income and
extra expenses you incur after the first 12 hours following the loss.

and other lab specimens and they become unusable due to mechanical breakdown or
interruption of electrical power, youre covered up to the business property limit of
