Thank you for your answer. I appreciate your quick response.
Sorry, I'm not sure if my last question went through. I just wanted to clarify. The contract actually states: "In addition to the compensation provided for in Section 7., above, the Employer agrees to Pay premiums for professional liability and malpractice insurance, in such amounts as the Employer deems necessary and appropriate in its sole discretion"
I'm assuming that even though the malpractice is provided at the sole discretion of the practice, that as long as the malpractice is necessary, they can't just stop paying. ie if they stopped paying for my regular malpractice, that would be a breach of contract. Since tail insurance is a necessary part of a claims based policy, wouldn't that make them not covering this "necessary" portion of my malpractice a breach?
Thank you so much for allowing me to clarify my question. Your answer was very helpful!
