Board of Directors

We’re a team of experts

In any given year, physicians, dentists, insurance brokers, attorneys and a variety of other professionals serve on the JUA Board of Directors. This breadth of experience allows us to examine healthcare challenges from several different viewpoints and make decisions that will benefit South Carolina’s medical professionals now and in the future.

Chairman’s Message

2015 will mark the South Carolina JUA’s 40th year of continuous service to our state’s medical providers. It’s quite a milestone by any measure. There have been many accomplishments of which we can all be proud. The JUA has enhanced the attractiveness of our state as a place to practice medicine, taken a leadership role in driving for tort reform, and established a track record of winning cases in South Carolina that is unmatched by any other carrier.

On the financial front, the JUA is continuing a strong positive trend. Underwriting performance has been excellent, and rates have steadily adjusted downward for the last three years. All of this is good for South Carolina medical providers and their patients.

As we prepare for and anticipate even greater change in the practice of medicine in the years ahead, I am confident that the JUA will remain a steady, positive force in the market.

I am immensely proud of the accomplishments of this organization over the last 40 years, and its positive contributions to both medical providers and their patients across South Carolina. It is an honor to serve as Chairman, and to assure you that the South Carolina JUA, your JUA, will continue that tradition of service for decades to come.

South Carolina Medical Malpractice Liability JUA

What People Are Saying…

As one of the largest physician practices in South Carolina our need to maximize our malpractice resources is paramount. We have worked with the JUA for over twenty years on an individual and group practice level. Our experience with the JUA provides us with a complete understanding of the market, and their coverage has always been our best liability protection.

CEO, Large Physician Practice,

Columbia Area

There are other resources for liability coverage available but the JUA is an organization that exemplifies the qualities of a service-based industry. I have not brought an issue to the JUA for assistance that was not managed to my satisfaction. I have been indirectly involved with malpractice actions and was very impressed by the attitude, diligence, and dedication of the attorneys involved with the cases.

Managing Physician, ER Practice

Coastal Area

I have worked with JUA for 30 years and would never consider using another insurer. Their responses to me, my concerns and my questions, have always been timely, appropriate, and correct. I could not have hoped for better than they have provided.
