Medical Malpractice Insurance

Insurance coverage that protects health care providers against patients who sue them under the claim that they were harmed by the physician’s negligent or intentionally harmful treatment decisions. This coverage can help prevent financial devastation in the event of a lawsuit. The Southern Medical Association has partnered with the Norcal Insurance Company, a Professional Liability Underwriter, to offer SMA physician members potentially significant discounts on their medical malpractice premiums. In many cases, a physician member may save 30%, 40%, or even more depending on their state and specialty.
