American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) Launches Medical Liability Program for Members
The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) is pleased to announce a partnership with Willow Risk Advisors to create an exclusive policy available to ASIPP members. In an effort to further increase value to its physician members, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) has endorsed Willow Risk Advisors as their professional liability insurance broker. Teaming up with the NORCAL group, Willow Risk has developed an exclusive Medical Malpractice Insurance Program tailored specifically to serve interventional pain physicians. This new program will offer necessary benefits including risk management, premium discounts, consent to settle, aggressive claims handling, and administrative defense.
"In the modern era of regulatory tsunami and exploding practice costs with declining reimbursement, the creation of an exclusive medical liability program for members of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) is one of the pivotal achievements of the organization. There are many important benefits of this program in addition to a savings on average of 15% to 40% exclusively for ASIPP members, with an additional discount tacked on for ABIPP board certification (*ABIPP Certification discount pending approval). As many practices are now forced to undergo 3 and 4 audits a year, another huge benefit is the administrative defense coverage for audits. Coverage limits can be extended up to $1 million.
We are confident this program will propel the importance of ASIPP and the importance of ASIPP guidelines We're proud to offer this new program on the heels of another successful ASIPP program, the National Interventional Pain Management Qualified Clinical Data Registry (NIPM-QCDR) which saves physicians 9% in penalties, and provides outcomes for interventional techniques we perform daily."
