New GAFP Affinity Partner – MedMal Direct Insurance


We at the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians pride ourselves in helping our fellow physicians practice the best medicine, and the partnerships we build play a critical role in achieving this goal.  I am excited to inform you of a new development as of our last board meeting.  Effective immediately, MedMal Direct Insurance Company is our preferred partner for Medical Professional Liability coverage.

MedMal Direct’s unique business model will provide GAFP and its members with better customer service, better risk management and aggressive defense in a claim or lawsuit while providing our members with savings opportunities of 25 percent or more.  All of this is offered at the most competitive price because they have eliminated the middleman, i.e. independent insurance agencies and brokerages.  MedMal Direct is committed to Georgia Physicians and their retention rate of 98 percent exemplifies their policyholder’s satisfaction.

Regardless of your renewal date, we encourage you to reach out to MedMal Direct’s team and request information and a quote. They are eager to share their value and provide a wonderful customer experience – they can provide a quote to you within 24-48 hours.

Why MedMal Direct?

The Georgia Academy was approached by MedMal Direct and went through the vetting process which included review and analysis by the Practice Management and Executive Committee before the proposal was brought to the full Board of Directors.  Several leaders volunteered to have their practices analyze MedMal Direct’s insurance products and found that there was a large savings to be found by switching insurance products.

MedMal Direct will be supporting the GAFP in our 2015 CME activities and will help offer ongoing educational updates related to business and practice management solutions as well as risk management for you and your team.

MedMal Direct’s customer service and unique business model drove us to create this partnership to assist you in your practice.

Please be on the lookout for a fax from MedMal Direct within the next few days to inform your practice managers of this exciting partnership. They are also spreading some “ring in spring” cheer and offering a chance to win OPENING WEEKEND tickets for the Atlanta Braves for GAFP member applications completed by March 20th!
