Standing beside you today and tomorrow.
Advocating for South Carolina’s medical professionals is our greatest passion, and it’s the reason we were founded in the first place. As a native not-for-profit association, we are, first and foremost, concerned with protecting our state’s medical professionals and patients, not shareholders or investors.
In 2005, we played an integral role in passing tort reform. As a result, physicians and other medical professionals throughout the state have had more confidence and freedom to do what they do best: practice medicine.
The passing of tort reform also opened the door for many private insurance companies to enter the South Carolina market. Increasing options to procure coverage, however, doesn’t remove the inherent volatility in the medical malpractice insurance industry. The JUA remains as committed as ever to serving and protecting insureds. We have been a stabilizing force in this state for more than three decades, and we will continue to be in the future.
