NCAPA Partners with HPSO on Liability Insurance

HPSO provides professional liability insurance for over 1 million healthcare professionals, and is now offering the same quality coverage, financial strength, and level of service to physician assistants.

NCAPA members can receive a non-cumulative 10% risk management credit applied to their annual premium for up to three years by attending either of our conferences and attending six or more eligible educational sessions. For complete details, visit the HPSO website or call toll-free.

Before you purchase or renew your individual professional liability insurance, NCAPA encourages you to look at what HPSO has to offer, and to compare rates with what you’re paying now. In many cases, a policy through HPSO can save you hundreds of dollars a year in premium. For more information on the HPSO program or to compare rates, visit them on the web at or toll free at 888-273-4686.

Lara Manchik, a PA working 12 hour shifts in the ER, was not pleased with the ill-fitting, poorly made scrubs that she had to wear every day.  Believing her work clothes did not project the professional image she wanted to portray, she founded Medelita to produce great fitting, high quality scrubs and lab coats.  Medelita is the source for professional medical apparel for women and men.

NCAPA has partnered with Medelita to make these products available to NCAPA members at a 15% discount.  Click here and log in to learn more and place your order!
