§29-12B-8. Preferred professional liability insurance program.
(a) Eligibility to participate in the preferred professional
liability insurance program shall be determined by underwriting
criteria approved by the board and set forth in a written
underwriting manual, and shall be subject to rates approved by the
board and set forth in a written rating manual. Participation in
the preferred professional liability insurance program shall not be
limited based on geographic location or specialty, but may be
limited based upon indemnity loss history, number of patient
exposures, refusal to participate in risk management/loss control
programs or any other grounds the board may approve, as set forth
in a written underwriting manual. The board shall periodically
review its underwriting manual and make any changes it considers
necessary or appropriate.
(b) Qualification for participation in the preferred
professional liability insurance program shall be reviewed each
year, and any participant may be transferred to the high risk
professional liability insurance program, as set forth in the
written underwriting manual approved by the board.
