Agents and Brokers
The same qualities that make us the premium choice among physicians—experience, flexibility, strength, activism, and superior service—also make us attractive to agents and brokers. We understand the nuances of covering physicians across many specialties, from individual doctors to large groups, and we have worked with agents, brokers, and administrators to build products around the specialized needs of our physicians and hospitals.
Here's a quick guide to submitting business:
Admitted: All physician and hospital professional liability submissions expiring on admitted paper will be underwritten in our Regional Underwriting operations, regardless of premium size. Our Regional Underwriting units will refer submissions requiring admitted high layer excess, loss portfolio transfers, and all fronting arrangements to Headquarters Underwriting.
E&S Lines: All physician and hospital professional liability submissions expiring on E&S paper, or requiring facultative reinsurance, will be underwritten by TDC Specialty Underwriters (TDCSU), a wholly owned subsidiary of The Doctors Company. Visit TDCSU’s website for a complete list of risk classes, underwriting contacts, and submission information.
Use our Underwriting and Business Development Contacts map for contact and submission information.
Please send submissions requiring admitted paper to the Underwriting region with the majority of the exposure. If you are unsure of where to send a submission, send it to any underwriter or region and we’ll route it to the appropriate team.
To Get Started
If you are an agent or broker representing The Doctors Company and have not yet registered, please sign up by creating a new user ID and password and providing us with some identifying information. The verification/activation process typically takes up to two business days.
For detailed instructions on using online Certificates of Insurance, credentialing reports, billing information, and more, see the Agent/Broker Portal Training Guide.
Prospective Agents and Brokers
If you are an established medical malpractice agent or broker representing physicians, we’d like to hear from you.
For doctors who are unable to find coverage in the standard markets, we operate our subsidiary, TDC Specialty Insurance Company, which offers innovative coverage solutions for physicians outside traditional risk profiles.
