I am volunteering in North Carolina. Do I need malpractice insurance? Am I covered by the Good Samaritan Law?
A: North Carolina does not require providers to have malpractice insurance and the Board cannot recommend a carrier or particular type of coverage. Clinicians should consult with a malpractice carrier of their choice for options. Liability is limited for volunteers offering services at no charge at designated facilities. Please see N.C.G.S. 90-21.16 for more information.
