    You pay your own.

    You pay your own, and it is pretty high for anesthesiologists from what I hear. However, since you’re making six-figures several times over a year, you could probably afford it.

    Actually you pay it. My mom’s a nurse and she has to pay for her own malpractice insurance.

    If you’re an employee of the hospital, they usually pick up the cost. If you are NOT a hospital employee, but work with a practice that has hospital priveleges, the practice usually picks up the costs. If you are a subcontractor who has hospital priveleges, YOU pick up the costs.

    You always have the option of having your own medmal insurance coverage, even if your practice or employer covers you as well.

    They MUST carry malpractice insurance… As far as who pays – that’s handled individually. If you’re employed by the hospital itself or if you’re part of an outside practice that has priviledges at the hospital – that makes a difference, as does the individual hospital.

    Good luck!
