The Medical Protective Company is pleased to introduce new Physicians Assistants rates, rules and forms for individual Healthcare Professionals. Where applicable we have separated the forms from the rates and rules and have submitted a separate filing under a separate submission. We respectfully request an effective date of July 1, 2009 for this submission. The enclosed Memorandum and exhibits detail the rate development of this filing and provide brief descriptions of the manual rate and rule pages included in the package. In addition to the aforementioned pages, please find specimen copies of the proposed policies and endorsements.
