NIP Specialty Brokerage Helps Brokers Navigate Through Increased Regulatory Oversight

(Woodbridge, NJ) November 21, 2011 — NIP Specialty Brokerage, a division, of NIP Group, Inc., proudly announces a complimentary webinar for brokers on the timely topic of how increased regulatory oversight and a changing environment pose new threats to the solvency of your practice. This webinar is co-sponsored by NIP Specialty and NAS Insurance Services.

Healthcare Providers are facing a rapidly changing regulatory and technological environment. The frequency, severity and overall complexity of cyber attacks are increasing at a concerning rate. The cost to an organization that suffers a privacy breach are constantly increasing. Are you and/or your clients properly protected for this changing environment?

The Federal Government, along with State Medicaid agencies, have began aggressively pursuing physician practices for billing violations. Rightfully so, providers are concerned about what this increasing regulatory environment means to them.

NAS, a leading provider of Cyber/Privacy insurance, in conjunction with NIP Specialty Brokerage, will be hosting a webinar to discuss these exposures, the increased regulatory environment, and what you can do to address them.

“Beyond Med Mal: Increased Regulatory Oversight and a Changing Environment Pose New Threats to the Solvency of Your Practice,” will be presented on December 6, 2011 at 2 p.m. (EST). Space is limited.
