    Hi Friends!
    I was checking out one of the job postings and it mentioned that I would need to have my own liability insurance. Does this mean if I want to be a remote coder from home, I need liability insurance? Does anyone know anything about this and could let me know what I need to do? Help is much appreciated!!

    Hello, to be a remote coder, having liability insurance is not a requirement for some companies. I think if your working as a independent contractor it is beneficial to have it. I have worked remote for 4+ years and its never been a requirement. However I am planning to obtain coverage myself soon. I think it justs depends on the company and their requirements for remote coders. AAPC does have a company out there thats listed under member savings & benefits that offers professional liability insurance. Hope this helps!!!!

    If you're looking for liability insurance you might want to check with your car insurance provider or home owners ins provider to see if they offer it. They might have a multi-policy discount so you could get it cheaper.

    I am trying to locate on the AAPC website for professional liability insurance as I am expanding and feel the need to protect my personal property from any law suit. Would someone help me with this? I have searched the product/vendors - I have used the Search, but nothing comes up.

    Thanks for any help,
    Sharon

    Marsh Insurance offers liability coverage through AAPC. It is relatively inexpensive and you should have it if you do any private work at all.

    You can find information here

    Good luck!
