Exclusively Endorsed by the American Society
of Plastic Surgeons
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons® (ASPS®) has exclusively endorsed The Doctors Company’s medical malpractice insurance program since 1990. We have earned the society’s endorsement through our fierce commitment to relentlessly defend, protect, and reward our members.
As the nation’s leading insurer of ASPS members, The Doctors Company has unparalleled insight into the broad range of claims in plastic surgery. Through the ASPS Professional Liability Committee, we work closely with the society to identify and resolve critical issues affecting plastic surgeons.
Backed by the financial strength of $4 billion in assets and a membership of 75,000 physicians nationwide, The Doctors Company offers ASPS members a unique combination of coverage features, aggressive claims defense, unrivaled protection, and tangible economic benefits.
Discover why more ASPS members choose The Doctors Company than any other insurer.
Extensive benefits for ASPS members
Program discount and claims-free credit.
Members with a favorable claims history receive a program discount of 5 percent, and members who remain claims-free may receive an additional credit of up to 25 percent.
The industry’s most aggressive legal defense.
We have an iron-clad consent-to-settle promise that means no claim is settled without the member’s consent, where permitted by law.
For members facing litigation, we offer Litigation Education Retreats that help doctors master defense tactics, develop sound testimony, and cope with the emotional stress of a claim.
Our Annual Legal Summit convenes authorities in medical malpractice law to perfect defensive strategies for emerging threats.
Unrivaled protection anytime, anywhere.
Our core medical liability policy includes protection against privacy breach and Medicare reviews through CyberGuard® cyber liability protection and MediGuard® regulatory risk coverage.
Members have access to industry-leading patient safety tools and programs tailored to ASPS members’ needs, plus free web-based and live CME.
Members receive our quarterly publication, The Doctor’s Advocate, which contains timely information on patient safety topics, legislative updates, and the latest industry and company news.
An unequaled financial reward.

That’s why we created the Tribute® Plan, a groundbreaking benefit that rewards you for your loyalty to The Doctors Company and for your commitment to superior patient care. The highest Tribute award to date is $138,599.
Eligible ASPS members also participate in our generous multiyear dividend program, which has returned $287 million in dividends since 1976.
Qualified members receive free tail coverage.
Founded by doctors for doctors.
