Your healthcare liability insurance program can be customized to fit your organization’s unique needs, group size, and expansion plans.

We focus on treating you fairly.

Certitude

This is a strong example of ProAssurance working with a very large healthcare organization to craft a program to that organization’s specifications. Certitude is a medical professional liability insurance program created with Ascension and underwritten by ProAssurance for physicians and related professionals affiliated with Ascension health ministries. 

Integrating the importance of patient safety, the Certitude program first began insuring physicians in early 2011. More than 20 Health Ministries in 12 states are now participating, with additional health ministry involvement under development.

Visit the Certitude website to see the Ascension health ministries in this custom program.

CAPAssurance 

If you are an insuring entity, you can find additional success from pairing with ProAssurance—as is the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. (CAP).

Large facilities and physician groups in certain U.S. western states now can benefit from this unique risk purchasing group program. CAPAssurance is offered through CAP with the same type of coverage it has offered since 1975; it is underwritten by ProAssurance Group, rated A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best.

Whether you currently offer malpractice insurance or are interested in using a risk purchasing group format and ProAssurance’s resources, we can help. Leverage our tools, resources, and financial strength to help you create a strong program.

Agency-Owned Captives, Risk Purchasing Groups

Agencies may wish to start their own segregated portfolio company captive or risk purchasing group, and ProAssurance can help. An example of an agency-owned captive for which we assisted formation is that of the WMS Holdings Risk Purchasing Group (WMSH RPG), a subsidiary of the Wisconsin Medical Society’s for-profit arm. ProAssurance assists agencies not affiliated with a medical society, as well.

The Wisconsin Medical Society wanted to have more control over the insurance program it offered to its members. They were willing to take on some risk for the potential upside of sharing in good outcomes, and they are satisfied with their decision.

Ask ProAssurance to help you examine if there is potential benefit in starting a segregated portfolio company captive or starting a risk purchasing group.
