Safecare Physicians Liability : Safecare Physicians Liability Medical Liability Insurance ( 800 ) 827-3035 x19 Medical Liability insurance on two platforms, as a traditional market and another that can help you save & build wealth in a tax friendly environment. The Opportunity! : The Opportunity! Number of years practicing medicine, claim free? Multiply that number by your medical-liability insurance premium? Put up to 40% of that in the bank! That’s the opportunity we’ll be exploring. History of Safecare : History of Safecare Safecare was created for Physicians with good loss history who would benefit from setting up “captives” or accounts to protect their assets and accumulate wealth. Safecare is an assemblage of existing laws that are not utilized by insurer’s because they only benefit the Physicians and not the Insurance Companies. Safecare puts control back into the hands of their physician/members.. How it Works : How it Works How it works now! Medical Practice purchases insurance from their agent. Agent places insurance with the carrier.

How it works with Safecare! Medical Practice purchases insurance from their agent. Agent places insurance with the carrier.

Premiums are retained for good loss results. Safecare allows the medical professional to retain up to 40% of their premium in exchange for assuming 25% of the risk in an asset protected vehicle with no liability for others in their group and with reinsurance from A Rated Reinsurance. How does Safecare Differ : How does Safecare Differ Retain up to 40% of your premium for good loss results. Funds are retained in the Doctors account with a US federally chartered bank or the Bank of Butterfield in Bermuda. Ability to self-direct funds. No cross liability between members. (The loss results of one physician does not affect other members of the practice or group.) Two years of “Tail” included in the rate. (Additional tail available.) Re-Insured with A (Excellent) Reinsurance. Ability to participate in any settlement. Ability to choose your legal counsel if qualified in the respective field. Ability to finance your premium over 10 months. Build wealth in a tax friendly environment. Admitted carrier with full access to the guarantee fund. Big Questions : Big Questions What if Underwriter Becomes Insolvent? Underwriter is well capitalized and backed by A Rated reinsurance. If Safe care goes out of business all of the physicians retention is owned by the physicians and under our admitted product you would fall under that states guarantee fund just as you do now. What is the risk to my money? The risk to the medical professionals capital is contingent solely on the individual doctor’s losses. All accounts are owned by the physicians. Monthly statements will come from PNC Bank or the Bank of Butterfield in Bermuda. Is legal included in the policy limits? In almost all states, legal is handled within the limits of the policy. The medical professional can also have the opportunity to participate in choosing their own qualified legal counsel. (In Florida physicians are responsible for 25% of the legal outside of the policy limits, limited to their “deductible”.) Is Safecare for me? If your loss ratio is less than 50% of your premium for your group for the past 5 years and you have a desire to re-capture part of your premium dollars safely in an asset protected vehicle earning interest, than yes. What if I am unsure about insuring in this way? Safecare is an admitted carrier that can write individual and group physicians risks in the same manner that your current carrier insures you today, typically at more competitive terms and rates. Call now for a FREE quote for individual and group risks. Biggest Questions : Biggest Questions What about Tail? All of our policies include 2 years of “Tail” coverage. Additional tail is available for purchase. Physician’s may also use funds in their captive to purchase additional tail where required. Most Physician’s tail themselves off and do not require additional tail. Even though their policy type may change from an active surgeon to assisting to consultant, etc., as long as their policy is active, they are, in effect tailing themselves off without purchasing any additional tail. For occurrence policies, Safecare is able to model the tail via an endorsement so that it is consistent with many Occurrence policies. What is required for me to sign up? Contact your local Safecare Agent. New Jersey Model : New Jersey Model **This group was paying $365,000. With Safecare their Premium was $300,000. ***Because their captive starts with over $75,000 and builds to over $250,000 over four years a capital contribution is not required. ****If a claim came in on day one, there would be approximately $675,000 in your account before you had to pay out dollar one. Florida Model Group : Florida Model Group Florida Model Individual : Florida Model Individual Premium -Total Premium Paid Captive Account Retention-Accumulates funds in the Doctors account and in the Doctors name to cover deductible exposures.
