About Professionals Advocate Insurance

Professional Advocate is a wholly owned subsidiary of MEDICAL MUTUAL Liability Insurance Society of Maryland.

These insurance companies are owned and operated by physicians, which is an advantage for doctors because physicians are aware of the needs of a practice more than general corporate management.

Medical Mutual was founded in 1975 but it really isn’t clear what year they founded Professionals Advocate.

Professionals Advocate offers the following types of products in Virginia, Washington DC and North Carolina:

  • Individual Professional Liability
  • Organization Professional Liability
  • Health Care Provider Group Professional Liability
  • Business Liability
  • Excess Liability
  • MedGuard

Professionals Advocate Insurance Agents

Professionals Advocate doesn’t usually use in-house agents. This means that you will have to use an independent agent for all of your needs.

The exception is in North Carolina, where you will have to contact the Wake Forest office in order to get help with a possible policy.

Professionals Advocates only has independent agents or brokers in Virginia and in Washington DC.

Currently, there are no licensed independent agents in North Carolina. It isn’t clear as to whether or not this is something that will change or if it’s just the way it is.

Professionals Advocate Insurance Claims

Unlike many auto insurance claims, claims for Professionals Advocate cannot be made online.

As a policyholder, what you will find is comprehensive information about what different types of claims are, what to do if you are sued after filing a claim, what you can expect in court and more.

If you have a claim, you will need to contact Professionals Advocate to start the claims process.

In addition, it isn’t stated on their website how long a claim might take to process, what type of information you will need for claims and so on.

In all likelihood, it is because the processes for these kinds of claims are much more complex than, for example, an auto insurance claim.
