Firm keeps N.H. malpractice premiums unchanged
ProSelect Insurance Company has announced that it will not be increasing medical liability insurance premiums for New Hampshire providers.
According to a press release, the company said, “medical malpractice jury awards have leveled in New Hampshire," prompting the decision to "stabilize” insurance rates.
More than 900 individual physicians and surgeons will see stabilized premiums throughout their policy's 2010-2011 term, said ProSelect.
Richard W. Brewer, president and chief executive of ProMutual Group, said "a possible reason" for the reduction in claims is "our focused attention on risk management, physician education, patient safety and the aggressive defense of good medicine for our policyholders." – CINDY KIBBE/NEW HAMPSHIRE BUSINESS REVIEW
