The Doctors Company has promoted Catherine Shutack to the position of senior vice president of claims. In her new role, Shutack oversees the claims function throughout all 50 states for The Doctors Company. She reports directly to Bill Fleming, chief operating officer.
“As service is the number one priority of the claims department, this new role provides me with an even greater opportunity to positively impact our members,” said Shutack. “I am proud to lead our claims department employees, who are committed to being the best partners for our members during the most trying times of their professional lives.”
Shutack noted The Doctors Company’s claims staff employees are some of the most experienced in the industry and share a passion to vigorously protect and defend members. “Being sued is a devastating, life-changing event for doctors,” said Shutack. “We’re there to support our members at every step, from the moment a claim is filed to when it’s closed.”
Shutack most recently served as vice president of claims for the company’s Northeast region.
“We are extremely pleased to promote Cathy to this national leadership position,” said Fleming. “Through her years with The Doctors Company, she has shown a passion for our members and for tirelessly defending the practice of good medicine. Under Cathy’s leadership, members can be assured they will continue to receive top-notch service throughout the life of their claim.”
