Supporting those who support health care

You give back. Let us do the same. COPIC provides volunteer physicians who deliver uncompensated medical care with medical professional liability insurance at no charge or a reduced cost.

Volunteer physicians are vital in clinical settings that provide care to vulnerable patient populations. It’s a way for physicians to give back to their communities, but these situations also present risks. COPIC offers a simple way to support eligible physicians who participate in volunteer opportunities. Our Volunteer Physician Program offers coverage designed for these situations and the process is simple: contact COPIC, review our list of requirements, fill out a brief application, complete the underwriting process and you’re on your way. If you’re a physician actively insured with COPIC, contact your underwriter for details about how to get started. 

Please note that requirements vary by state (coverage may not be available in certain states) and there may be laws which govern immunity for physicians who provide volunteer medical services.

“COPIC’s unique and wonderful volunteer provider program makes it so much easier for me to continue seeing children on a volunteer basis. I get great joy out of serving these patients that struggle to get the health care they desperately need.”
