A FRUSTRATED PHYSICIAN ASKS: How Much Insurance is Enough?

OVER HEARD IN THE DOCTOR’S LOUNGE

I currently have no fewer than 10 separate insurance policies associated with my plastic surgery practice. I understand very little about the policies other than that somebody at some point told me I needed each and every one of them, and each made sense when I bought it. But, I often wonder:  

  • Am I over-insured and thus wasting money? 
  • Am I under-insured and thus at risk for a liability disaster? 

I never really had the means of answering these questions …. Until Now!

ABSTRACT

The appropriate focus in managing the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has been addressing access and delivery of care to the population affected by the outbreak. All sectors of the U.S. economy have been significantly affected,including physicians. Physician groups of all specialties and sizes have experienced the financial effects of the pandemic.Hospitals have received billions of dollars to support and enable them to manage emergencies and cover the costs of the disruption.

However, many vascular surgeons are under great financial pressure because of the postponement of all non-emergency procedures. The federal government has announced a myriad of programs in the form of grants and loans to reimburse physicians for some of their expenses and loss of revenue. It is more than likely that unless the public health emergency subsides significantly, many practices will experience dire consequences without additional financial assistance.

The authors have attempted to provide a concise listing of such programs and resources available to assist vascular surgeons who are small businesses in accessing these opportunities.
