Medical Malpractice Claims Management
We begin with remaining open to our clients’ needs. We believe that flexibility combined with creativity and claims and litigation management best practices must be combined to allow for the development of a claims team and services to meet your needs. We approach our services from two levels:
(1) dynamic and proactive claims and litigation file management in partnership with our clients and counsel; and
(2) providing performance and trending information to your Board as a partner in running a successful insurance company.
VCS-VCM Consulting Solutions
VCM recognizes that it is financially advantageous for some healthcare professional liability programs to manage their claims in-house rather than outsourcing to a TPA. However, sometimes you may want some advice, a process audit to be sure your in-house program is following guidelines and best practices; or you need specific project work to be performed by an outside source. Our philosophy is that our knowledge should be available to all programs, no matter the claims structure. This is why VCM will unbundle all of our TPA services. As most TPAs will not unbundle their services, this is one more way VCM stands out from the crowd in our market.
