September 29, 2020

Expands Medical Professional Liability Coverage Options to Large Medical Groups and Healthcare Facilities

LOS ANGELES, September 23, 2020 – The Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc. (CAP) announced today it has entered into a new relationship with Professional Security Insurance Company, a member of the well-known nationwide MagMutual Group and an A.M. Best “A” (Excellent) rated insurance company, to offer superior medical professional liability coverage to large medical groups and healthcare facilities through the CAPAssurance Risk Purchasing Group.  

As the medical malpractice insurance industry experiences a hardening market and an increase in rates, CAP recognizes that healthcare providers need nimble solutions and strategic partners to help combat current financial challenges and risks emerging from an evolving healthcare landscape.  

“Changes continue to shape an increasingly turbulent medical malpractice coverage market. CAP and its physician leaders remain steadfast in our ability to provide reliable coverage options for our valued CAPAssurance clients. We are excited to work with a company that shares CAP’s commitment to protect and bolster the success of medical practices and healthcare facilities through innovative and financially secure risk transfer financing, along with proactive risk management and practice management support programs,” said CAP CEO Sarah E. Scher, JD.  

CAPAssurance brings the same client-centric approach to professional liability coverage that has made CAP an industry leader since 1977 through the Mutual Protection Trust (MPT). Backed by the MagMutual Group’s similar service philosophy, CAPAssurance will continue to offer hands-on expertise, resources, and support to meet the needs of its current and new clients.  

“Like CAP, MagMutual is focused on developing smarter solutions and bold innovations to help physicians and healthcare facilities better understand their risk, improve their outcomes, and achieve superior protection and success,” said MagMutual Insurance Company President & CEO Neil Morrell.

CAP’s new relationship with the MagMutual Group signals an end to its previous relationship with ProAssurance Casualty Company, which had helped to promote and grow the CAPAssurance program among medical groups, hospitals, and medical facilities since 2013.  

“The CAPAssurance program has been a success thanks to the tireless efforts of our team here at CAP and the support and service provided through our relationship with ProAssurance. We are grateful for our relationship with ProAssurance and for the growth CAP has experienced as a result of our mutual efforts on behalf of the CAPAssurance program,” Ms. Scher added.   About the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc.
