Since 1991, the Medical Liability Monitor Annual Rate Survey has provided a continuing overview of the changing rates physicians pay for medical professional liability (medical malpractice) insurance. It is a picture we paint state-by-state, county-by-county because where physicians practice largely determines the premiums they pay.

Each year, we survey the major writers of medical malpractice insurance for physicians. We ask for manual rates for specific mature, claims-made specialties with limits of $1 million/$3 million — by far the most common limits. These are the rates reported unless otherwise noted. We report on three specialties to reflect the wide range of rates charged: Internal Medicine, General Surgery and Obstetrics/Gynecology.

When we contact survey participants, we ask them to provide data on all the states in which they actively market to physicians. We only report rates for companies that maintain filed and approved rates for each state in which they sell medical professional liability insurance.

The Medical Liability Monitor Annual Rate Survey is consistently cited by the U.S. General Accounting Office, Department of Health & Human Services, the Congressional Budget Office, numerous newspapers and trade journals as well as regularly used to influence legislation in Congress and state legislatures. Our readership considers this exclusive survey an invaluable resource, referring to its information throughout the year.
