The Tribute Plan Rewards Doctors
for Practicing Good Medicine

Unlike commercial insurance companies, which look for ways to reward shareholders, The Doctors Company is dedicated to rewarding our members. In 2007 we created the Tribute® Plan, an unrivaled financial benefit that rewards you and your fellow physicians for your loyalty and dedication to superior patient care.

As an organization committed to providing the best imaginable service, we are profoundly honored to have now attained an industry-leading achievement—the distribution of more than $120 million in Tribute Plan awards. While other insurers have attempted to follow our lead, The Doctors Company is by far the only medical liability insurer that celebrates the careers of physicians with rewards of this magnitude.

The Tribute Plan at a Glance

  • The Tribute Plan has paid over $120 million to more than 10,000 doctors. And the largest payment to date is $264,808.
  • The Tribute Plan is an innovative benefit for you and your fellow members of The Doctors Company that will not affect your current or future premiums in any way—it’s a financial reward that you would not receive if you were with any other national medical liability insurer.
  • This unique award comes from a well-respected, established carrier with a long track record of strong financial management. The Doctors Company is rated A by A.M. Best Company and Fitch Ratings.
  • This benefit will not affect The Doctors Company’s ongoing dividend program, which returns premiums to qualifying members for better-than-expected loss experience.
