TMLT POLICIES AND EMERGENCY RELIEF WORK
TMLT polices extend coverage for physicians performing emergency relief work related to Hurricane Harvey. However, if you are employed by a group, your group may restrict coverage only to work done on behalf of the group. Please check your policy to see if this restriction is in place, and work with your group to expand coverage.
Contact your TMLT underwriter for more information.
