The Doctors Company Mission: Defend, Protect, Reward
Benefits for FDA Members
Eligible FDA members receive a 5 percent program discount and an additional claims-free credit of up to 10 percent. FDA members also receive automatic protection against privacy breach allegations and Medicare reviews and have access to free web-based and live CME.
The Doctors Company is fiercely committed to defending its members, beginning with an ironclad consent-to-settle guarantee. And the company’s innovative Litigation Education Retreats help members facing claims to be active participants in their own defense.
National perspective and local expertise enable The Doctors Company to anticipate emerging trends and deliver innovative solutions. Industry-leading patient safety programs and resources help members implement effective safety protocols, resulting in significantly fewer allegations of malpractice.
The Doctors Company rewards its members for their loyalty and commitment to superior patient care with the Tribute® Plan, an unrivaled financial award. More than $7 million is currently earmarked for Tribute Plan awards for Florida dentists. Eligible FDA members also participate in the company’s generous multiyear dividend program, which has returned over $415 million in dividends since the program’s start in 1976.
Privacy and data security exposure is the fastest growing threat to your dental practice. As a member, you receive cyber liability protection as part of your core coverage. CyberGuard protects you against claims arising from the theft, loss, or accidental transmission of electronic patient information, as well as regulatory fines and penalties, and the cost of data recovery. Higher limits are available.
