The SC JUA Difference

When it comes to choosing a medical professional liability insurance provider, you need a partner, someone who will stand beside you and help you make the tough decisions. You also need an ally who will aggressively defend you. Now more than ever, you need a provider who is personal, proactive and proven.

Personal

As a company rooted in South Carolina, we are able to provide you with a truly personal experience. This means more than friendly and prompt service. It means having a partner sitting at the table with you. From face-to-face meetings with claims specialists to tailor-made defense strategies, this personal attention is what makes the JUA truly unique.

Proactive

We are dedicated to helping you stay in front of medical liability risk, to manage it effectively and to be informed about new trends as the practice of medicine continues to evolve. For more than 40 years, the JUA has worked directly with insureds to re-evaluate coverage needs on a practice-by-practice basis, as our insureds’ practices have expanded, merged or changed. Today, we offer more medical professional liability coverage options than any other carrier in South Carolina. We offer both Claims-made and Occurrence forms, semiannual risk management classes for new doctors, the most knowledgeable underwriters in the business, a 90+% success rate in the court room, and a promise that you will not have your coverage dropped if you have a claim.1

We leverage our knowledge and experience for the benefit of the entire medical community in South Carolina, not just our insureds. We played a significant role in leading the effort to secure tort reform, and have helped sustain South Carolina as an attractive market in which to practice medicine. That’s not just good for our state’s medical providers, but also for the patients they care for.

We are proud of the tradition we have established as a leader in medical professional liability insurance, and honored by the trust that has been placed in us.
