The Medical Protective insurance firm has teamed up with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and created a new medical malpractice programn and class of coverage for cosmetic and plastic surgeons.

The new program will underwrite those members performing more than 20% facial plastic surgery in their own facial plastic surgeon class description. Members who qualify for the facial plastic surgeon rating class will receive a 5% credit and those that are also ABFPRS (American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery) board certified will receive an additional 5% credit.

“We strive to promote the highest quality facial plastic surgery through education, dissemination of professional information, and the establishment of professional standards,” stated Donn Chatham, MD, AAFPRS Past President. “We teamed up with Medical Protective not only for their outstanding claims results, but also their commitment to risk management and patient safety education.”
