The Doctors Company, the
largest national insurer of physician and surgeon medical liability,
has received the exclusive endorsement of the Los Angeles County
Medical Association (LACMA) as the preferred carrier for its members.
LACMA represents physicians from every medical specialty and practice
setting across Los Angeles County.



The Doctors Company succeeds The SCPIE Companies, which were acquired
by The Doctors Company in 2008, as LACMA’s endorsed carrier. LACMA had
endorsed SCPIE since the company’s founding in 1976, but recognized
The Doctors Company’s unrivaled protection and benefits as well as the
continuation of the excellent service SCPIE had always offered.



“We promised that California policyholders would experience even more
competitive rates as a result of the SCPIE acquisition. On January 1,
2009, we reduced premium rates for our 7,000 Los Angeles County
physicians an average of 20.2 percent,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD,
FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company. “We appreciate that
LACMA recognizes the enhanced value of The Doctors Company, our
unparalleled service, aggressive legal defense, and the Tribute(R)
Plan, a financial benefit program that rewards member physicians for
their loyalty to the company and their commitment to superior patient
care.”



“LACMA believes that The Doctors Company offers the industry’s best
liability coverage, most aggressive claims defense, and member
benefits that best meet our physicians’ needs,” said Dominick
Spatafora, CEO at LACMA.



Key program benefits include competitive pricing, tail vesting at any
age, broad liability limits, clinical trials coverage, and
industry-leading patient safety and risk management programs. LACMA
members will also be eligible for the Tribute Plan. For more
