MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY INSURANCE
NORCAL Mutual has partnered with RenewalMSO to offer very attractive premiums for medical professional liability insurance. Even if you are already insured by NORCAL, the premiums available through RenewalMSO might still save you money.
But that’s not all. When you purchase your medical malpractice insurance from NORCAL, you receive a complimentary risk assessment, access to an industry-leading risk management CME program (available to you on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smart phones), and Claims Rx, a monthly publication that features claims-based learning and risk management advice on both clinical and administrative topics. Typically, each issue of Claims Rx provides an opportunity for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. After reading an issue, you simply complete the post-activity quiz online to receive your CME certificate.
More than 40 years ago, a group of physicians in Northern California — faced with a crisis in the liability insurance industry that threatened their practices — banded together to start a new policyholder-owned and physician-directed insurance company for the betterment of their fellow physicians. That company was NORCAL Mutual. Forty years later, they’ve grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of the industry, becoming a national company serving multiple generations of physicians, while still holding true to their roots.
Financial Strength and Stability
NORCAL has earned an A.M. Best “A” (Excellent) rating for 34 consecutive years, reflecting their unwavering commitment to financial strength and stability. Their national growth has secured a position as the eighth-largest MPLI carrier in the nation, based on direct written premium*.
Local Service, National Resources
NORCAL has grown from their Northern California roots in 1975 to the eighth largest MPLI carrier in the nation today. They protect more than 27,000 policyholders from diverse locations and specialties, including multiple generations of physicians. The NORCAL Group of companies actively writes in 35 states and the District of Columbia, with plans to expand into additional markets. Their national resources enable them to deliver innovative products to the market, while their network of local agents provide the local expertise and service that policyholders expect.
Risk Management and Educational Resources
NORCAL’s industry-leading risk management CME program awarded 30,356 CME certificates to participants and earned ACCME Accreditation with Commendation — the highest level of designation — for the third consecutive six-year cycle in 2015. Their award-winning resources include their monthly CME publication, Claims Rx, and their Medical Liability Risk Management Content Series, which include topics such as patient termination, preventing HIPAA data breaches, responding to online physician ratings, EHR best practices, and more.
