Mission Statement

The Ob-Gyn Risk Alliance's (OBRA) mission is to support and partner with Obstetric and Gynecologic providers in their efforts to reduce medical errors and enhance patient safety while controlling liability loss. We do this by offering Ob-Gyn focused practice improvement tools and medical liability insurance solutions, along with evidence based risk management programs and resources. We strive to be the insurer of choice for Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

OBRA is underwritten by ProAssurance.
