Liability Insurance Requirements
Members must carry a minimum of $5,000,000 professional liability and general commercial liability insurance through our preferred insurance broker, BMS. Commercial policies purchased elsewhere, must be reviewed and be equivalent to what our brokers have deemed appropriate coverage. Under insured members may have their membership inactivated.
Once a membership application has been processed, we will send you the link for 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 broker 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.
All Members are required to keep their places of practice (Clinics) updated, as client insurance companies will be able to verify active members by searching their name on the NMOS website.
