Hospitals Insurance Company, Inc. (HIC) provides insurance products and services to more than 10,000 physicians in the metropolitan New York area who are employees of our client hospitals or have admitting privileges with those hospitals.

Under the Voluntary Attending Physicians (VAP) program, physicians approved by FOJP's client hospitals are eligible for primary and excess medical professional and general liability coverage. HIC also offers on-line risk management education to meet regulatory requirements for New York's Section 18 excess insurance coverage.

FOJP and HIC offer a wide range of publications, risk assessment surveys, and courses that can help physicians identify and minimize risks of medical malpractice resulting from procedures, medical record documentation, patient confidentiality, informed consent, patient-physician communications, and practice management.
