Risk Management Requirements

OB Course Requirements, last renewal between: 

Policy Year                              Relias Courses Required (PLM Format) 

July 2020 - June 2021             Fetal Heart Rate and Uterine Contraction Monitoring
                                                Managing Shoulder Dystocia

July 2021 - June 2022             Obstetrical and Postpartum Hemorrhage
                                                Hypertension in Pregnancy

All first year participants are required to complete a Medical Practice Site Survey (“Survey”) in addition to the course requirements listed above. The survey must be completed within your first policy year to qualify for renewal consideration with a 25% premium credit. The survey is tailored to address your practice’s needs and areas of risk. A ProAssurance Risk Resource Advisor will schedule the visit at a mutually convenient time. The Advisor will review policies, procedures, protocols, credentialing files, and patient’s medical records; along with interviews of select personnel. The survey will take approximately four hours and includes a short meeting with the physician, as well as the practice administrator. Following the visit, you will receive a written report with observations and risk reduction strategies to help you improve patient care and mitigate your professional liability risk.

Fertility and Gyn-only Physicians

Physicians specializing in fertility or Gyn-only (no obstetrics) may complete the requirements above—or choose to complete two of the courses listed below in lieu of the “Course Requirements” above (the survey for first year participants is still required). If the physician has completed all of the following online courses, please provide certificates of completion totaling at least six (6) CME hours of coursework in your specialty (completed within the previous 24 months and not utilized for Board maintenance requirements).

Should you have any questions, please contact Preston Hairell at 800-282-6242 ext. 7928.
