ProSelect Insurance Company/Coverys Services

The company does business in:

Without medical liability coverage, healthcare providers wouldn’t be able to do their business without the fear of lawsuits. Coverys helps manage the risks associated the practice of medicine. The company first determines a facility or practitioner’s risk and how well it is being managed with the programs already in place. Coverys focuses on the management of risk, as well as the safety of patients.
In order to develop a tailored policy, Coverys representatives do a comprehensive office appraisal. These employees are registered nurses, so they have extensive experience in a medical setting. The company does an assessment of the facility to identify any high-risk issues they may find, ranging from staff credentialing to badly maintained clinical areas. Assessments are done for facilities ranging from hospitals to nursing homes.
Coverys will then benchmark the facility to see where it compares with its peers in the field. This helps the insurance company, along with its client; develop an action plan in making their practice safer and helping to reduce the risks as much as possible.
In addition to its medical liability insurance, Coverys works with the practitioners themselves to provide support to those that are facing lawsuits and claims. The emotional support needs of these practitioners are often overlooked, and Coverys strives to lessen the impact of the suit or claim on the practitioner’s professional and personal lives.
Coverys is also a member of the Massachusetts Coalition for the Prevention of Errors, helping to identify the cause of medical errors and introduce strategies that help in their prevention.
