Facing a medical malpractice lawsuit is a very real possibility for healthcare providers in almost every specialty. Many, though not all, states require doctors to carry medical malpractice insurance for this very reason. And even in states where such insurance is not required, many providers opt to purchase it to protect their financial security.

However, more doctors and medical facilities are starting to “Go Bare,” which means to practice without medical malpractice insurance. As we explain on this page, Going Bare offers a number of benefits, especially when healthcare providers invest in Going Bare legal defense services.

Our law firm wants to spread awareness about this alternative to high-cost and potentially unreliable medical malpractice insurance. We are offering a $1,000 essay scholarship to students who are currently enrolled in or have been accepted to a junior college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the U.S.
