Career Award Represents Tangible Proof of Membership for Nearly 20,000 Doctors in California
The Doctors Company is the exclusively endorsed medical liability carrier of the San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS). We share a joint mission of supporting doctors and advancing the practice of good medicine.
One of the many advantages of coverage with The Doctors Company is the Tribute® Plan , a significant financial benefit that rewards doctors for their loyalty to The Doctors Company and for their dedication to outstanding patient care. This year marks the Tribute Plan’s fifth anniversary.
“The Tribute Plan is recognition of a career spent practicing good medicine,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company. “In the last five years, more than 1,300 Tribute awards have been distributed, and over 22,700 members of The Doctors Company have qualified for awards when they retire from the practice of medicine. These members have an average Tribute balance of $11,500, and the highest distribution to date is $88,708.”
