ACP and The Doctors Company offer liability insurance credit

The American College of Physicians (ACP) and The Doctors Company are pleased to announce the industry's first program that offers physician-members of ACP a credit on The Doctors Company medical liability insurance for Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

Physicians who complete the MOC, or recertify, will receive a 5 percent credit in addition to their 5 percent program discount when they insure with The Doctors Company. This added credit applies for physicians who are required to recertify and those who do so voluntarily.

"ACP is pleased to offer this additional premium discount that recognizes the efforts of internists and internal medicine subspecialists who voluntarily engage in the activities of Maintenance of Certification," said John Tooker, M.D., M.B.A., F.A.C.P., ACP executive vice president and chief executive officer.

"As the endorsed liability carrier for ACP and the first carrier to have a dedicated Patient Safety Department, The Doctors Company fully supports the Maintenance of Certification as a way for physicians to demonstrate a commitment to continual improvement of their knowledge and skill," said Richard E. Anderson, M.D., F.A.C.P., chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company. "We believe this credit distinguishes member physicians who are personally motivated to provide the highest level of patient care. This is another way in which we are living our mission to advance and protect the practice of good medicine."

Eligibility for the credit includes those ACP physician members who complete, or have already completed, the Maintenance of Certification process in either the specialty of general internal medicine or their subspecialty. These medical subspecialties include allergy and immunology, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, gerontology, hematology, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pulmonary medicine, and rheumatology. There is no additional discount beyond the 5 percent credi
