February 04, 2013
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Jacksonville-based MedMal Direct Insurance Company (MedMal Direct) announces it has received its certificate of authority from the Georgia Department of Insurance and has officially launched operations as a medical malpractice insurance carrier in Georgia.
MedMal Direct enables physicians to realize significant savings on one of their largest expenses — medical professional liability insurance premiums. “We offer the same coverage as our peers, and we defend our physicians and their reputations vigorously with the best attorneys in the industry. By using our direct-write distribution model, we avoid the middleman and we are able to pass on the savings to the physician,” said Butler Ball, CEO of MedMal Direct.
Tim Bone, President of MedMal Direct, said, “Because of the commoditized nature of medical malpractice insurance, it is simply more efficient for the physician to purchase directly from the company. We have a proven track record of success in Florida and are happy we can now begin serving the physicians of Georgia with great service, aggressive litigation management and significant premium savings in these financially difficult times. It’s better to be direct!”
