The EPIX Advantage

EPIX is a partnership of the best ED Groups in America

All of EPIX's groups are committed to raising the standards of patient safety to reduce risk factors that lead to malpractice claims. The partnership model assures a standard of high quality risk management practice that is essential to providing long-term, stable and affordable insurance for our groups.

It is the intimate involvement of risk management and patient safety programs into our offering that is uniquely EPIX, but it is not the only benefit:

  • Selective underwriting and risk profiling, assuring only high quality emergency groups are admitted into the Company
  • Financial accountability directly to the insured groups, with any excess premiums returned
  • Insured groups participate in the governance process
  • Aggressive claims defense, with immediate review of the claim by a board certified emergency physician, and periodic evaluations of the case as it develops.
  • Highly regarded insurance experts and advisors supporting the Company and management
