Exclusive Coverage for Kidney Dialysis Centers Offered by Five Star Healthcare
SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Five Star Healthcare(TM), a division of Crump Insurance Services, Inc., and part of Crump Group, Inc., the nation’s largest insurance wholesaler, today announced it has added a new insurance facility for Kidney Dialysis Centers.
The program, offered through an A.M. Best A XI rated carrier, is tailored to meet the unique insurance needs of dialysis providers. Operations of any size are eligible and coverage includes professional and general liability as well as HIPAA coverage, hired and non-owned auto, and abuse and molestation liability. A key benefit of the program is that premium is calculated based on the annual number of clinic visits, rather than of revenue, allowing for more competitive pricing. Five Star is the exclusive point of access for this class of business with this carrier.
“Kidney dialysis is a life-sustaining medical treatment provided by these clinics which treat over 500,000 people in the U.S., each year,” said Lee Lloyd, Executive Vice President of Program Development for Crump. “This insurance program provides vital protection for their operations and is based on volume of visits, resulting in more affordable rates. This facility provides another excellent solution for our retail partners with healthcare accounts.”
Five Star works with licensed and insured retail property and casualty agents and brokers. Those seeking more information regarding Five Star Healthcare products and services can visit www.5starsp.com/healthcare.
