Titan RRG will offer professional liability coverage to physicians and health care professionals practicing in 48 of the 50 states, protecting them from volatile prices and reducing costs.

Titan RRG’s product offering reduces the growing burden of professional liability premiums facing providers across the country, and aligns with Steward’s core mission of delivering extraordinary health care that unlocks access to the high quality, low cost care everyone deserves. In considering local markets and trends, Titan RRG offers customizable and competitive rates, including potential cost savings to the provider up to 30 percent. Additional product benefits include Titan’s premium credits and an on-line education platform that meets regulatory Continued Medical Education (CME) requirements.

A captive insurance program is not a new a concept to Steward Health Care System as they have self-insured their employed physicians and hospital entities for over 10 years through TRACO, an internationally domiciled entity in the Cayman Islands, with a long history of providing stronger and well managed protection to those delivering health care on the front lines.

“With our successful history of reducing costs associated with medical malpractice claims, we look forward to offering this benefit through Steward Health Care Network to partnering providers,” said Ruben King-Shaw, Jr., chief strategy officer of Steward Health Care System and president of Steward Health Care Network. “Now, we are excited to be able to share the Titan RRG product with providers, nationally.”

“Over the past decade, Steward Health Care Network has perfected a business model that keeps patients healthy and reduces the overall cost of providing high-quality care,” said Doug Costa, Chief Operating Officer of Steward Health Care Network. “Titan RRG is another tool that will help Steward and participating physicians more effectively deliver high quality and affordable care in today’s complicated marketplace.”
