Insurance Information

Members must carry a minimum of $5,000,000 general and liability insurance.

Once a membership application has been processed, we will send you an inactive membership number and the insurance application. In order to activate your membership number and begin using it for billing purposes, you will need to contact the insurance broker and arrange for the submission of your application and to make payment arrangements.

The insurance company will then notify NMOS that your application has been processed and your insurance is in place. We will then activate your membership number, notify you via email that you are activated and you may begin to use your new NMOS number for billing purposes.
