Serving You as You Care for Us
As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the communities where we all live and work, our mission to advance, protect, and reward the practice of good medicine is more important than ever.
Our members are on the frontlines of this pandemic, providing medical care, insight, and comfort at a time when it is desperately needed. Today, tomorrow, and every day, The Doctors Company will be prepared to respond to your needs—from questions about patient safety and best practices, to advocating rational health policy, to protecting you from the scourge of malpractice litigation. We will continue to provide 24/7 consultation services to you even as we strive to keep our employees safe.
Uninterrupted Service—In New Ways
We have instituted new ways of being there for you, just as you have for all of us. In keeping with current public policy, many of our employees will be working from home for at least the next several weeks. We have all the necessary technology in place to make this possible without significant interruptions in service.
Our 18 offices around the country will remain open as long as local authority permits, but staffing is limited and in-person visits are discouraged. Our systems are running normally and you can still reach your contacts at The Doctors Company using the same email addresses and phone numbers.
Your Policy Covers Telemedicine
If your practice is considering offering more virtual patient visits in light of COVID-19 and you wonder about potential medical liability, we have you covered. The Doctors Company’s medical professional liability policy does not draw any distinction between traditional care and telemedicine.

Retired and Returning to Practice—Your Tribute Award and Tail Coverage Are Safe
If you are a retired member of The Doctors Company and are returning to practice to help in the emergency, we assure you that your decision to return will have no impact on your extended reporting period, or tail, coverage with us. Your Tribute Plan award that was given to you upon retirement will not be impacted.
To ensure that you receive the latest updates on actions we're taking to support you and your practice as the situation evolves, I encourage you to register for an online account.
We have never been prouder of our mission. The entire nation is grateful for the medical care you're providing.
