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 now and in the future
Our medical liability policy includes protection against privacy breach and Medicare reviews through CyberGuard® cyber liability protection and MediGuard® regulatory risk coverage.
