WisMed Assure provides Medical Professional Liability, Business Owners, Workers Compensation and more to clinics and health care groups throughout Wisconsin. Laura Dillett Weber works on the Professional and Business Insurance team.
What products/services do you and your part of the WisMed Assure team provide?
- Medical Professional Liability for physicians and other health care professionals, facilities, surgery centers and hospitals
- Property, General Liability and Workers Compensation coverages for medical offices
- Management Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Umbrella, Excess and Bonds
Why is it important for physicians/groups to have this coverage or these services in place?
A Primary Medical Professional Liability policy with an admitted carrier is required by the Wisconsin Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund (IPFCF) for physicians and CRNAs. We are contracted with four carriers admitted to write medical professional liability in Wisconsin. As a result, we can search for and secure the best coverage and competitive pricing for our clients.
Additional coverages like Directors & Officers, Fiduciary Liability, Umbrella and excess coverages are placed via national broker partners for our clients that have these coverage needs. A discussion with clients can help us determine their exposures and how best to cover them.
Who should reach out to your team for coverage (what stage of life, age, etc.)?
Physicians, other health care professionals and practice managers can all reach out to discuss their practice and coverage needs. If a health care professional or a practice are making a change, (changing practice hours, adding procedures, buying property, etc.) it’s a good time to contact us and discuss what changes are needed to their insurance programs.
Tell us a little about your background and why you do what you do?
My career includes 18 years as a Professional Liability underwriter working for some of Wisconsin’s largest insurance carriers. Following that, I joined WisMed Assure and now enjoy working directly with our clients. Due to my underwriting background, I have a good understanding of policy language, coverages and how to effectively work with carriers. I like working for my clients to ensure that the correct coverage is in place and that pricing is fair and accurate for the work they do.
What’s different about WisMed Assure?
The level of experience in our agency is difficult to beat! All the members of our Service Team have been in the Medical Professional Liability industry for many years. We’ve seen changes in the marketplace, have worked with different carriers and understand the coverage requirements in this state. Our agency’s singular focus is and has always been health care professionals.
What is your favorite client story?
I think my favorite is when we can really show our value to a customer by acting as a resource for coverage questions, providing them with a fast turnaround for something they urgently need, correcting a premium that results in savings to them and holding our carriers to high standards of service. Our goal is to make insurance the easiest part of their practice and it’s something we work at every day.
