Top Ten Car Insurance Companies for Doctors

Information All Medical Professionals Need to Know

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

As regular ME-P readers know, I held a property and casualty insurance license for more than 15 years; this included homeowners and automobile insurance.

It also included malpractice [doctors and medical professionals] and E&O insurance [accountants, financial advisors, attorneys, etc]. Yep! Med-mal is classified under the property-casualty moniker. I even edited a handbook on the topic.

So, it is no surprise that car insurance companies number well over 100 in many states. But, who are the top 10 car insurance companies? Most doctors and lay drivers would not be surprised to see Allstate, State Farm or GEICO on the list of top 10 car insurance companies by market share; but how about USAA, Farmers or Liberty Mutual?

After an Accident

Following a collision, the insurance company will assign a claims adjuster to determine the extent of damage and the cost of repairs.  If these repairs exceed the estimated value of the vehicle, it may be “totaled.”  Experience tells me that the value of the vehicle to the owner nearly always exceeds that estimated by the insurance company. This is true in my case, as well.

Assessment

The medical professional is therefore strongly urged to consider purchasing replacement cost coverage rather than accepting actual cash value, which is the depreciated value of the vehicle. The cost may be higher for this coverage, but accepting a larger deductible will often make up the difference. Paying a little more towards the deductible could easily be worth it, if the damage is extensive.

Or, if you have a special vehicle [pristine pearl white 2001 Jaguar, XJ-V8-LWB] like I do.
