The Doctors Company, the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, has announced a $28 million dividend, which is made possible by the excellent claims experience of The Doctors Company’s members.
Since 1976, The Doctors Company has paid more than $338 million in dividends, and 2015 marks the 10th year in a row that the company has awarded dividends. The 2015 dividend, approved by The Doctors Company’s Board of Governors, will provide a premium reduction of 20 percent to eligible members in Wyoming.
Dividend percentages are based on the loss experience of the individual state. Eligible members will receive this year’s dividend as a credit on their annual premium for policy renewals on or after July 1, 2015. Members of the following select medical specialty societies may also receive a dividend: American College of Surgeons, American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, and American Society of Plastic Surgeons®.
