The New York State Society of Plastic Surgeons (NYSSPS) Executive Council has chosen The Doctors Company as the exclusively endorsed medical malpractice insurer for its members.
“We chose to endorse The Doctors Company because as an organization founded and led by physicians and owned by members, they share our commitment to address challenges faced by our members and our focus on legislative advocacy,” said Stephen Coccaro, MD, NYSSPS president. “As the largest insurer of plastic surgeons in the nation, The Doctors Company also has an unparalleled understanding of liability claims against our specialty.”
“We are very pleased to welcome the NYSSPS as a partner,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company. “We are strongly aligned with the society’s focus on legislation and regulation. Through our national and state advocacy efforts, we defend existing reforms, prevent legislation that would undermine the defense of our members, and support measures that would limit liability exposure for physicians.”
NYSSPS members are now eligible for a multitude of offerings from The Doctors Company, including aggressive defense; expert patient safety tools and programs; risk management courses to maintain Section 18 excess eligibility; primary and excess coverage through a single carrier; and a range of coverage options for both physicians and ancillary healthcare providers.
Eligible NYSSPS members of The Doctors Company will also benefit from the Tribute® Plan, which financially rewards doctors for their loyalty and commitment to superior patient care.
The Doctors Company recently expanded its presence in New York and is now offering coverage on an admitted basis. Additionally, New York medical groups can be issued coverage through The Doctors Company Risk Retention Group. Both The Doctors Company and The Doctors Company Risk Retention Group are rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best Company and Fitch Ratings.
