In today’s world, physicians need to consider not only how to best treat patients, but also how to protect themselves legally and financially. A considerable part of any overhead of clinics and private practices is the cost of insurance premiums. For doctors and other health care workers, medical malpractice insurance is one of these insurance costs.

Professional practices have many options when it comes to medical malpractice insurance, but one name stands out: Medical Protective. As one of the largest names in the business, the company has the wide range of insurance products and services physicians require. The larger size of the company can mean competitive rates, robust coverage and plenty of options.

Medical Protective is a liability insurance company in the United States, focused on providing services for dentists and physicians. Originally founded as the Physicians’ Guarantee Company in 1899, Medical Protective insurance services include defense solutions (including pre-paid legal services) for medical malpractice claims.

The company was purchased by Berkshire Hathaway in 2005 and is now part of MedPro Group. MedPro is owned by Berkshire Hathaway and offers insurance and asset protection as well as risk services for hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and other health care facilities and professionals.
