We deliver innovative coverage solutions.
As an organization founded, owned, and led by physicians, we are closely aligned with the medical profession. We identify emerging risks and deliver innovative coverage solutions. When it comes to protecting your name, your livelihood, and your reputation, we are your most powerful ally.
Medical Malpractice Coverage for Physicians and Surgeons
We are the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer. We deliver superior coverage and are the only carrier able to relentlessly defend, protect, and reward the practice of good medicine with national resources and local clout.
Our medical malpractice program, which protects 74,000 physicians and surgeons nationwide, offers our members unique features—including MediGuard®, CyberGuard®, and the Tribute® Plan, our breakthrough financial benefit—that strengthen the practice of medicine while making it more rewarding.
Free tail coverage—For members who have been insured by The Doctors Company for five continuous years, we offer free tail coverage upon retirement from the practice of medicine or in the event of disability or death.
MediGuard—We automatically provide MediGuard coverage as part of our medical malpractice policy. This important coverage provides you with legal representation for administrative actions brought by Medicare/Medicaid, medical licensing boards, credentialing reviews and actions, professional review organizations, federal agencies regarding EMTALA, and the DEA.
CyberGuard—Privacy and data security exposure is the fastest growing threat to your medical practice. As a member, you receive cyber liability protection as part of your core coverage. CyberGuard protects you against claims arising from the theft, loss, or accidental transmission of electronic patient information, as well as regulatory fines and penalties, and the cost of data recovery.
For members who demonstrate a strong commitment to their specialty, we go above and beyond by offering premium credits and discounts.
