CRICO’s mission is to provide a superior medical malpractice insurance program to our members, and to assist them in delivering the safest health care in the world.
CRICO’s work to eliminate health care risk is unmatched — it saves lives. We have a vested interest in anyone who can offer significant value to patient safety efforts; in this respect, CRICO’s work with comparative data is more relevant than ever.
For 40 years, the CRICO insurance program has provided industry-leading medical professional liability coverage, claims management and patient safety resources to its members. In 1976, the crisis of insurance availability led the Harvard Medical Institutions to form a “captive” medical professional liability insurer, CRICO, an offshore insurance company operating and domiciled in the Cayman Islands. Harvard’s model of creating an offshore captive—an insurer owned by the facility or health care system it exclusively insures—was later replicated by other health systems across the U.S.
Today, we represent the largest medical professional liability carrier in Massachusetts, distinguished by the varied size and structure of our member organizations. Coverage is limited to employees of, and physicians sponsored by, a member institution, each of whom must meet CRICO’s eligibility criteria.
The CRICO insurance program operates through a group of companies owned by and serving the Harvard medical community. It is structured as follows:
