CRICO OB Patient Safety Program

Related to: Nursing, Obstetrics

Click here for Obstetricians

For CRICO-insured Certified Nurse Midwives and Family Practitioners 

The OB Patient Safety Program is open to all CRICO-insured Midwives, and Family Practitioners (with obstetrics privileges). This voluntary program rewards risk-reduction activities with a malpractice premium discount. Specific risk reduction activities must be completed in the calendar year prior to receiving the discount. The discount is given each year for two consecutive years as a 10 percent rebate of your individual premium. At the end of the two-year period, you may requalify for the program by repeating the original requirements and continuing the cycle of participation indefinitely. CRICO reserves the right to discontinue or alter the program in the future, with sufficient notice to participants. Costs encountered for completing specified risk reduction coursework are the responsibility of each CRICO OB Patient Safety Program participant.
