Achieving Better Results—Ohio Claims Statistics

ProAssurance uses public data from the Ohio Department of Insurance to demonstrate our commitment to claims defense. Your reputation is less likely to be damaged by an unnecessary settlement when ProAssurance defends your claim. ProAssurance closes claims without an indemnity payment at a significantly higher percentage in Ohio than the competition.* This gives you a greater opportunity to avoid the adverse results of claims litigation.

*Ohio tort reform requires all entities providing medical professional liability insurance (i.e., authorized insurers, surplus lines insurers, risk retention groups, and self-insurers) to report closed claims to the Ohio Department of Insurance. The department released data for 2005–2014, as of November 2016. The comparisons shown use reported ProAssurance data along with the remaining reported data from other entities to the department of insurance.

In Defense of Good Medicine

You can make the choice for greater control over the uncertainties of the litigation process through ProAssurance's defense approach. An analysis of the Ohio Department of Insurance statistics shows ProAssurance helps give you an edge as you guard your valuable physician identity. ProAssurance pays more to defend our insureds. ProAssurance spends less on indemnity payouts, which means less on settlements and plaintiff’s verdict awards.

Defense costs are covered in addition to the limits of liability, so your coverage for any verdict is not lessened by defense costs. ProAssurance is uniquely dedicated to defending your care. Our focus is to spend what's necessary to provide you with a personalized and rigorous defense. Spending more on defense benefits you through fewer data bank reports for claims closed without an indemnity payment.

ProAssurance has a win rate significantly higher than other companies. Legal defense coverage is offered for additional circumstances, such as investigations related to HIPAA and Medicare/Medicaid pursuant to terms of the policy.
