TDC Group Announces Medical Liability Insurance Tailored for Advanced Practice Clinicians
Napa, California–September 20, 2022–Advanced practice clinicians (APCs) play a prominent role in a constantly shifting healthcare landscape. TDC Group, through medical professional liability insurers The Doctors Company and The Doctors Company Risk Retention Group (RRG), has been protecting APCs since 1976. TDC Group will now offer affordable, top-tier medical malpractice insurance coverage tailored for APCs in a variety of practice settings.
Keeping with its mission to advance, protect, and reward the practice of good medicine and to meet the challenges of today’s healthcare environment, TDC Group’s tailored coverage is available to:
- Nurse Practitioners (NPs)
- Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs)
- Certified Nurse Midwives (CNMs)
- Certified Midwives (CMs)
- Physician Assistants (PAs)
These esteemed professionals represent an expanding presence in medicine; in a time of rapid changes, APCs are vital to improving patient care, quality, and access to care. Insights from the newly formed APC Advisory Board will assist in helping members and clients navigate this change in healthcare delivery with confidence.
"Our mission is to serve those who provide care, and this includes a broader cross section of the medical team, in whatever form of practice they choose,” said Laura Kline, MBA, CPCU, CIC, Senior Vice President, Business Development, The Doctors Company and TDC Group. “APCs practice along a continuum, ranging from required supervision to complete independence. As their roles expand, APCs will face increased risks and exposures. We are pleased to offer this superior malpractice coverage in an innovative platform.”
TDC Group created a Direct-to-Consumer professional liability purchase platform for APCs, leveraging an exclusive relationship with the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) and its 375,000+ participating APC providers. APCs have the option of utilizing credentials data in the application and quote process. This new, innovative approach will streamline the application, improve accuracy, and protect personal data. Coverage may also be obtained through authorized agents and brokers.
Over the next decade, as predicted in TDC Group’s white paper What U.S. Healthcare Will Look Like in 2032, physician shortages, combined with recognition of the competencies of APCs, will drive more widespread independence in practice for APCs.
