Medical Liability Insurance Program

The ACS has offered The Doctors Company’s medical liability insurance program as a member benefit since 2002. The Doctors Company has always been guided by a fundamental belief that the practice of good medicine should be advanced, protected, and rewarded.

Backed by the financial strength of more than $4.6 billion in assets and a membership of 80,000 physicians nationwide, The Doctors Company offers ACS members expert guidance, resources, and coverage. That’s malpractice insurance without the mal.

Benefits for Eligible ACS Members:

  • Program discount of 5 percent for qualified members with a favorable claims history.
  • Additional claims-free credit of up to 25 percent for eligible members.
  • Participation in the Tribute® Plan, an unrivaled financial benefit that rewards member loyalty and commitment to superior patient care.

  • Free tail coverage for qualified members.
  • Patient safety programs tailored to the needs of ACS members.
  • Automatic protection against privacy breach and Medicare reviews through CyberGuard® cyber liability protection and MediGuard® regulatory risk coverage.

Informed Consent Documents

Procedure-specific informed consent documents covering more than 3,500 procedures from 28 specialty areas are now available to ACS members at a significantly reduced rate through the iMedConsent PE application. The iMedConsent application can be individualized and generated into a progress note. It includes patient information sheets, along with consent forms, and is available in both English and Spanish language formats. Both fully electronic and paper-based versions of the application are available.

A free 30-day evaluation is available to all ACS members. The ACS does not review or endorse the Taylor Healthcare iMedConsent product; however, the ACS Patient Education Committee views this product as a valuable member service. Taylor Healthcare informed consent documents and applications are used by more than 15,000 providers in practices, surgery centers, and hospitals, including all Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals.
