The Doctors Company Assists Members Impacted by Hurricane Irma

Cancellation and Premium Installment Due Dates Will Be Adjusted

Napa, California—September 14, 2017—Due to flooding and power outages affecting parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and North Carolina, The Doctors Company announced that it will adjust policy cancellation due dates and premium installment due dates for its members practicing in areas impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Adjustments will be made on a weekly basis to ensure there is no break in coverage for those members unable to make their payments due to the devastating effects of the storm.

As effects of the storm spread, The Doctors Company will include other impacted areas where members will receive adjustments. Members who practice in these areas, as well as their agents, should contact their underwriter with any questions.

“We are saddened by the disaster that has occurred in states affected by Hurricane Irma,” said Robert White, senior vice president and regional operating officer for The Doctors Company’s Southeast Region. “We will do everything we can to assist our affected members. Once the storm waters have subsided and power has been restored, our underwriters will continue to work with any member who was unable to make policy payments because of Hurricane Irma and its aftermath.”

The Doctors Company is also encouraging its employees to volunteer and to financially assist victims through qualified nonprofit organizations of their choosing.
