Medical Professional Liability Insurance

You can expect innovative liability solutions for emerging healthcare classes of risks with diverse needs. Think telemedicine, virtual medicine, locum tenens, emergency medicine, multi-state, multi-specialty, risk sharing, and more. The Excess & Surplus (E&S) division provides single-source solutions for your physician and healthcare clients seeking alternatives to the standard market medical professional liability coverage.

Physicians, physician groups, and medical facilities are considered based on their unique attributes and requirements. The E&S lines division works with approved wholesale and national retail brokers to find customized coverage options. Solutions may include varying levels and structures of coverage to suit your clients’ needs. These include consent to settle, tail coverage, defense costs, self-insured retentions and deductibles, incident reporting, and more.

When you place an E&S client with ProAssurance, coverage is underwritten with a history of experience, expertise, and financial strength. We strive to make it easier for you to do business with us.
