MLMIC’s Spring Network Meetings Examine Million-Dollar Claims in New York

With more New York claims experience than any other carrier, MLMIC is able to draw important insights that are both current and locally relevant to New York physicians, providers, practices and healthcare facilities. In a recent review of claims closed over a 5-year period, we identified the leading causes of loss in high-exposure claims: those that resulted in payments of $1,000,000 or more.

At MLMIC’s upcoming Spring Network Meetings in nearly a dozen locations across New York during May and June, we’ll review a summary of these claims and offer strategies to reduce the risks to your organization. The program – presented by MLMIC Risk Management Consultants, Claims Representatives and attorneys from Fager Amsler Keller & Schoppmann, LLP – is designed to provide risk management education to our insured physicians, medical directors, facility risk managers, office practice administrators, nursing staff, marketing and IT staff and other healthcare professionals.

Upon completion of this year’s program, which can qualify participants for CME credits, participants should be able to:

  • identify the leading causes of loss in million-dollar claims;
  • analyze the key factors leading to significant payments in these claims;
  • recognize the chief medical misadventures identified in these files; and
  • implement risk management strategies to lessen the risks of high-exposure professional liability claims within your organization.
