Should I notify my malpractice insurer of my participation in the Georgia PHP?


Most Georgia malpractice insurance policies have a “catch all” notice provision that makes it a duty of the insured physician to notify the insurer of any changes in their practice. You need to review your individual insurance policy to see if such a provision exists. According to John Miller at Sterling Risk Advisors, who represents the majority of the malpractice carriers in Georgia, “It is always best to partner with your malpractice insurer to disclose any changes that may affect patient care. It is preferable to proactively volunteer such information as underwriters see this disclosure as a positive step in your road to recovery.
