At HPSI we notice a thing or two, and after over 25 years in business, we pick up quickly on who’s offering a great deal, and as always, want to share that knowledge with our trusted agents.

What have we noticed with Vela?

1) Medical Directorship coverage

You may have a more than a few options for this coverage, but did you know that Vela is very competitive on this risk?

  • Average premium ranges between $2,000 and $3,500.
  • Includes both Admin and Collaborative (indirect patient care) coverage

2) Expert Witness Coverage

An interesting fact! Expert witness coverage is not covered by a regular malpractice policy due to the financial loss exposure of this risk. For example, an expert witness can be sued for negligence for an alleged error made which ended up causing a financial loss for the attorney’s client due to an adverse court verdict.  For this exact reason, your client’s malpractice policy may not be sufficient.

  • Average premium runs around $2,500, $1M limits

(Dependent on the frequency of testimony provided)

By the way – what is a Risk Retention Group, or “RRG”?  
An RRG is a liability insurance company that is owned by the individual people it insures, also called “member-owners”. The NRRA puts it succinctly by explaining when an individual secures insurance from a Risk Retention Group they are also securing an ownership in that RRG. It functions as a captive insurance company for the primary purpose of assuming and spreading the liability exposures of its group members.  And due to its unique structure, an RRG has the added benefit of avoiding cumbersome multi-state licensing laws.
