                  ICC Neurosurgeon Self-Insurance Plan 

                                                               What is Medical Malpractice Self Insurance 

 

ICC  Self insurance was formed to help Neurosurgeons and doctors find the proper coverage for their practice.  ICC is aware of the high cost of insurance and is doing its' part  to give doctors an option to the high cost of insurance premiums..  What one carrier will not do, SELF- INSURANCE will.

The Healing Arts Board does not require doctors to have insurance in order to maintain their medical license. [Insurance is not medicine]. Some states don't require surgeons to carry malpractice insurance to practice in their state. So, what is the problem?.  Hospitals who are self- insured require doctors to carry insurance to have hospital privileges. Insurance companies require doctors to have insurance to do business with them on health cost reimbursement. Are you getting the picture now? 

STATES FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS

Some states require doctors to have malpractice insurance to practice in their state, however, self insurance can be accepted as long as the doctor can meet the financial requirements; most states do not require financial requirements. To find out, call ICC and we will check the regulations for your practice and help you meet those state obligations. 

HOSPITAL REQUIREMENTS. Hospitals have over the past been reluctant to give hospital privileges to doctors and surgeons who were self insured, even though they meet financial requirements by the hospital. This has changed over the past in doctor's favor by court rulings requiring hospitals to allow hospital privileges. Call ICC for more information call 1 (316) 683-0170.  Dan Martinez CEO  

ICC’s technological provides an optimization approach to designing a plan that is acceptable to hospitals and state requirements.  When you want optimal options to reducing cost, consider the ICC way.

The cost of Medical Malpractice premiums are raising every time a claim is made against your malpractice policy with insurance companies. It does not  matter if you're not a fault. Whenever the insurance company steps in to defend a malpractice claim, your rates increase. ICC Underwriters is aware of the high cost of insurancee and is doing its' part to  keep insurance rates for doctors down.  "What one carrier will not do, a self insurance plan will."    

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN A SELF INSURED PLAN IS APPROPRIATE FOR MY PRACTICE 

Simply add up the premiums your practice paid to insurance companies for the past 5 years.  Subtract what the insurance company paid out in losses for those 5 years.  If the insurance company collected more premium dollars than they paid out, your company is a candidate for becoming self-insured. 

Formula

Suppose a Neuro-Surgeon paid $650,000.00 in annual premiums and the insurance company paid out $150,000.00 each year in liability claims inclusive of attorney fees for those past 5 years. With this assumption, the surgeon would have paid $3,250,000 in premiums and the insurance company would have paid out $750,000.00 combined in liability claims. This would be a 2.5 million dollar profit for the insurance company in premiums. The analysis is self evident.. 

Becoming self insured; you put that profit in your pocket rather than the insurance company's.  

Reason

The courts have ruled in some states that as long a surgeon has the funds on hand or an irrevocable letter of credit to pay liability claims in the amount that the hospital requires the surgeon to have, the hospital must allow the surgeon hospital privileges as a self- insured entity. Some surgeons have obtained a irrevocable standby letter of credit or opened a separate bank account to satisfy hospital's financial requirements.
