The Tribute Plan
We believe that doctors deserve more than a little gratitude for a career spent practicing good medicine. That’s why we created the Tribute® Plan in 2007 to reward members for their loyalty to The Doctors Company and for their commitment to superior patient care. We’ve paid more than $120 million in Tribute awards, and the highest award paid to date is $264,808.
Your defense starts with a promise to never settle a claim without your consent, where permitted by law. If you are sued, seasoned advocates will support you throughout the litigation process, and Litigation Education Retreats give you the skills necessary to be a strong player in your own defense.
Visionary Risk Management Experts
Members have access to a wealth of resources, including industry-leading programs that help doctors and practices implement effective protocols, resulting in significantly fewer allegations of malpractice. And the industry’s largest claims database gives us an unparalleled understanding of lawsuits against doctors. This data-driven approach enables us to anticipate emerging trends and deliver innovative patient safety tools to help our members reduce risk.
We automatically provide MediGuard® coverage as part of our medical malpractice policy. This important coverage provides you with legal representation for administrative actions brought by Medicare/Medicaid, medical licensing boards, credentialing reviews and actions, professional review organizations, federal agencies regarding EMTALA, and the DEA.
Privacy and data security exposure is the fastest growing threat to your medical practice. As a member, you receive cyber liability protection as part of your core coverage. CyberGuard® protects you against claims arising from the theft, loss, or accidental transmission of electronic patient information, as well as regulatory fines and penalties, and the cost of data recovery.
