Exclusively Endorsed by
the American College of Cardiology
The American College of Cardiology (ACC) exclusively endorses The Doctors Company’s medical malpractice insurance program.
As the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer—and the nation's leading insurer of cardiologists—The Doctors Company has unparalleled insight into the broad range of cardiology claims. This enables us to identify emerging threats and deliver innovative solutions to our members.
Backed by the financial strength of more than $6 billion in assets and a membership of 80,000 physicians nationwide, The Doctors Company offers ACC members expert guidance, resources, and coverage. That’s malpractice insurance without the mal.
Extensive benefits for ACC members
Program discount and claims-free credit for qualified members
Members with a favorable claims history receive a program discount of 5 percent, and members who remain claims-free may receive an additional credit of up to 25 percent.
Members can also receive additional premium savings of up to 10 percent by participating in two of the following ACC programs: maintaining board certification, participating in the PINNACLE Registry®, or completing the Patient Safety and Risk Management Self-Assessment Program (SAP) providing 12 CME credits.
Relentlessly defending you in and out of the courtroom
Your reputation and livelihood are on the line, so we take allegations just as seriously as you do. If a claim is ever made against you, our defense will be uncompromising and our team of member advocates will be there, by your side, supporting you throughout the litigation process.
For members facing litigation, we offer Litigation Education Retreats and Surviving Litigation Seminars that help doctors master defense tactics, develop sound testimony, and cope with the emotional stress of a claim.
Proactive coverage for today’s practice environment
Our national perspective and local experts enable us to anticipate emerging threats and deliver innovative solutions—for example, our medical liability policy includes cyber liability protection and MediGuard® regulatory risk coverage.
Risk management and patient safety expertise
Members have access to industry-leading patient safety tools and programs tailored to ACC members’ needs, plus free web-based and live CME.
Members receive our quarterly publication, The Doctor’s Advocate, which contains timely information on patient safety topics, legislative updates, and the latest industry and company news.
We reward members
Unlike commercial insurance companies, which reward shareholders, we’re dedicated to rewarding our members. The Tribute® Plan is an unrivaled financial benefit paid to members at retirement—the highest Tribute award paid to date to is $264,808.
Qualified members receive free tail coverage.
Founded and led by doctors
The physicians we insure are members of our organization, not just policyholders. We are founded and led by physicians—including a physician majority on our Board of Governors.
