Patient safety is the Certitude program’s hallmark, supporting the practice of good medicine with improved risk management service and claims defense. Certitude provides an approach unlike any other. With coverage underwritten by ProAssurance Group companies, physicians and healthcare providers get a carrier that is rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best, and is one of our nation’s largest medical professional liability carriers—in operation since 1976. ProAssurance has offices throughout the U.S. and is committed to the concept of Treated Fairly® with every encounter.
Policy provisions include:
- Claims defense that begins with a unified approach. Before Certitude, interests of providers and hospitals often collided. Certitude’s unified approach is both intelligent and fair, as the insured’s voice is heard throughout the claims defense process.
- Reduced uncertainty with Certitude’s CyberAssurance endorsement. Increased reliance on technology and electronic data leaves a physician vulnerable to data breaches and hacking. Certitude’s policy endorsement helps begin to address this evolving area of risk.
- Coverage for certain peer review services and death, disability, and retirement coverage according to policy conditions. The Certitude program’s professional liability policy offers convenient, interest-free payment options to assist physician practice cash flow. Policy enhancements may be available in certain states.
