The Doctors Company Assists Members Impacted by Hurricane Michael
Cancellation and Premium Installment Due Dates Will Be Adjusted
Napa, California—October 9, 2018—Due to potential disruption to member medical practices in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina, The Doctors Company announced that it will adjust policy cancellation and premium installment due dates for its members practicing in areas impacted by Hurricane Michael.
Adjustments will be made on a weekly basis to ensure there is no break in coverage for those members unable to make payments due to the effects of the storm.
Members who practice in the impacted areas, and their agents, should contact their underwriter with any questions.
“We will do everything we can to assist our affected members,” said Bill Fleming, COO, The Doctors Company. “Once the storm and its effects have passed, our underwriters will continue to work with any member who was unable to make policy payments because of Hurricane Michael and its aftermath.”
The Doctors Company is also encouraging its employees to volunteer and financially assist victims through qualified nonprofit organizations of their choosing.
