Berkshire Hathaway specialty insurance arm Berxi has entered into a strategic alliance with Vizient Insurance to offer medical malpractice insurance to Vizient members.
The insurance product, which is claimed to offer an enhanced digital experience, is tailor-made for Vizient’s allied healthcare professionals.
The agreement has become effective since 1 January 2020.
Vizient is a member-driven health care performance improvement firm in the US.
It provides improved solutions that boost the delivery of high-value care by aligning cost, quality and market performance for more than 50% of the acute care providers in the US.
Under the terms of the deal, Berxi will deliver Vizient members with fast, efficient digital access to medical malpractice insurance.
Berxi will allow members to choose from a variety of insurance limits and coverage features such as defence costs that are paid in addition to the limits.
Berxi managing director Adam Yasan said: “We look forward to supporting Vizient member health professionals in their insurance needs through this agreement.
“Many health care professionals are looking for more insurance protection and the Berxi digital sign-up experience provides ease of access, speed and choice in coverage to meet these needs.”
Berxi offers medical malpractice insurance coverage to nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, and other allied health medical professionals and students.
