Preferred Physicians Medical
Anesthesiologist founded, owned, and governed since 1987.
Preferred Physicians Medical Risk Retention Group (PPM) is the only company of its kind in America — an anesthesiologist only medical malpractice insurance company — founded by and for anesthesiologists exclusively. PPM was formed by anesthesiologists to specifically address the professional liability needs of anesthesiologists and their practice.
Our anesthesia-specific approach guarantees that our entire focus is dedicated to anesthesiologists and their practice specialty. Although only 4% of the total physician population are anesthesiologists, 100% of PPM's policyholders are anesthesiologists, so 100% of our time is spent developing products and services specific to the professional liability needs of anesthesia practices. This is especially important in risk management efforts.
Since 1987, PPM has reviewed the claims history of more than 16,000 practicing anesthesiologists. In addition, PPM's claims department has investigated more than 11,000 adverse outcomes and defended more than 3,000 claim and litigation files. With this information, PPM has an unparalleled ability to identify and address loss trends. PPM uses this data to establish fair and appropriate premium levels, manage claim files and provide anesthesia-specific risk management advice to its policyholders in the form of on-site seminars and its popular risk management newsletter, Anesthesia & the Law.
PPM is national in scope and insures anesthesia practices in 38 states with premiums over $40 million. PPM is currently rated A- (Excellent) with a "stable outlook" by A.M. Best, the insurance rating agency.
