About The Doctors Company
Our mission—to advance, protect, and reward the practice of good medicine—inspires all we do.
As the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, we are fiercely committed to relentlessly defending, protecting, and rewarding our members with the industry’s most aggressive claims defense, unrivaled protection, and innovative rewards.
We lead the industry because of the leaders in our boardroom.
More than half of our Board of Governors are physicians or surgeons, ensuring that our members’ best interests are protected and pursued.
Our financial strength gives us the power to protect and defend our members now and in the future. The Doctors Company has $4 billion in assets and $1.4 billion in member surplus—the strongest of any national physician-owned medical liability carrier—and we are rated A by A.M. Best Company and Fitch Ratings.
Through our subsidiaries, we offer a wide variety of additional insurance products and services. The Doctors Company Insurance Services offers a portfolio of coverages to protect against the business risks inherent in today’s medical practices. We also provide medical liability coverage for physicians and surgeons who have difficulty obtaining coverage from standard markets through the Professional Underwriters Liability Insurance Company (PULIC).
Working together to advance the practice of good medicine.
The nation’s most prestigious medical organizations—representing over 300,000 doctors—recognize our dedication to excellence and endorse or sponsor us as their chosen medical liability insurer. Our work with these societies addresses emerging issues facing the profession and provides society members with significant benefits.
In 2008, we created The Doctors Company Foundation to support patient safety research and education programs through charitable grants. The Foundation, led by David B. Troxel, MD, medical director at The Doctors Company, works to improve the environment in which doctors and all healthcare providers practice.

The Doctors Company was founded in 1976 in response to the medical malpractice insurance crisis in California that closed thousands of physician offices and threatened patient access to affordable care. After leading the charge for comprehensive tort reform, our founders established The Doctors Company to continue the cause of advocating for physicians and advancing the practice of good medicine.
