Attention California Physicians Renewing December 31st!

Posted by | October 03, 2014 | No Comments

Depending on your current professional liability coverage program, your options for reducing your 2015 premiums could be limited.  If you are one of the thousands of physicians in this situation, you may be liable for next year’s entire annual assessment unless you take action now.

In some cases, you must give notice by October 31st that you intend to opt out of the 2015 assessment even though your coverage does not renew until December 31st. If specific notice is not given, you will be responsible for paying next year’s entire assessment, even if you wish to move to another insurance company. Furthermore, your policy may be assessable meaning your coverage provider can raise all its members’ costs at any time – even if you personally do not experience a loss.

In today’s market, you have more options than ever when it comes to your professional liability insurance.  Regardless of your specialty, there are “A” rated malpractice insurance companies offering quality coverage at competitive rates to suit your practice’s specific needs.
