Maryland Not Alone in Lowering Medical Malpractice Premiums for Doctors

Maryland is not alone in seeing steep reductions in the premiums doctors pay for medical malpractice insurance. The Doctors Co., one of the medical malpractice insurance companies in the country, has filed with California state regulators to reduce malpractice premimus by an average 18.2%.

Doctors also seeks approval to increase its “claims-free” discount for California doctors from 12.5% to 17.5% for certain surgical specialties, including general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, thoracic/cardiovascular surgery and even plastic surgery.
