Napa, California—October 25, 2016—As part of a strong commitment to ob/gyns in Georgia, The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, has partnered with the Georgia Obstetrical and Gynecological Society (GOGS) to provide eligible GOGS members with an exclusive medical malpractice insurance program. Through the endorsement, eligible GOGS members can receive a 35 percent program discount, a 10 percent patient safety discount, and up to a 25 percent claims-free discount on The Doctors Company coverage.
Backed by the financial strength of over $4 billion in assets and a membership of 78,000 physicians nationwide, The Doctors Company offers GOGS members expert guidance, resources, and coverage. In addition to the program discount, GOGS members receive the industry’s most aggressive legal defense, including an iron-clad consent-to-settle promise and Litigation Education Retreats, which help doctors master defense tactics, develop sound testimony, and cope with the emotional stress of a claim.
GOGS members have access to industry-leading patient safety tools and programs, plus free web-based and live CME. In addition, Georgia ob/gyns can access The Doctors Company’s closed claims studies, providing specific insights about the unique risks obstetricians face in practice and strategies to reduce that risk.
“We’re very pleased to partner with the Georgia Obstetrical and Gynecological Society,” said Bob White, senior vice president and regional operating officer at The Doctors Company. “Through this program, our innovative patient safety resources and unmatched coverage will help Georgia ob/gyns protect their practice and their patients.”
