Prescription rebate program

The Office of Risk Services initiated a premium rebate program for the Professional Medical and Hospital Liability Program in the 2006-2007 fiscal year. This program is separate from the Be Smart About Safety Program, which applies to the General Liability and Workers Compensation Programs.

The University of California Professional Medical and Hospital Liability Malpractice Premium Rebate Program is designed to encourage risk reduction initiatives aimed at reducing the cost of risk for the hospitals and schools of medicine. The program encourages clinical loss prevention and patient safety and rewards hospitals and medical groups for developing and implementing specific initiatives.
