APA Medical Director James H. Scully Jr., M.D., has announced that APA will
continue its relationship with Professional Risk Management Services (PRMS)
Inc. to offer APA members a comprehensive professional liability insurance
program through The Psychiatrists' Program (The Program). Many thousands of
psychiatrists have looked to The Program, which is managed by PRMS, for
professional liability protection for over 20 years, said Scully.
The Program offers psychiatric-specific risk management, insurance, and
litigation services. Program participants have access to numerous risk
management services, including the toll-free Risk Management Consultation
Service (RMCS) helpline, Online Education Center with multimedia tutorials,
complimentary CME risk management seminars, a subscription to Rx for
Risk, and more.
The policy includes coverage for forensic psychiatric services and
administrative defense benefits. Discounts are available for part-time,
child/adolescent, early career, and moonlighting members-in-training.
