PRI Records $153 Million Improvement to Surplus



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Financial, Underwriting and Operational Turnaround Began in July

Reciprocal Insurers
(“PRI”), the second largest admitted medical
malpractice insurer in New York State, today announced that the
organizational restructuring that began in July 2017 has resulted in a
$153 million improvement to its surplus through March 31, 2019. Over the
past seven quarters, PRI has fundamentally changed the way it does
business through greater financial discipline and a re-underwriting of
its entire book of business, focusing on the profitability and quality
of the business.

PRI has made significant changes to improve the overall operations of
the Company, including considerable technology and web-based upgrades.
Additionally, PRI has seen significant improvements in underwriting,
claims handling and general operations, all of which have contributed to
a surplus improvement since the reorganization began in July 2017.

Financial results since PRIMMA took over from July 1, 2017 through March
31, 2019, reflect the positive restructuring efforts, including:

  • Net income of $155.8 million for this 21-month period ($23.3 million
    for the six months ended December 31, 2017, $120.7 million for the
    year ended December 31, 2018 and $11.8 million for the period ended
    March 31, 2019).
  • Overall surplus improvement of $153 million or 45% for this 21-month
    period from ($341 million) at July 1, 2017 to ($188 million) at March
    31, 2019, reflecting improved underwriting results and the prominent
    effect of technology enhancements enabling our insureds and brokers a
    much more robust and enriched platform to service their needs.

“We are extremely proud of the dramatic turnaround that PRI has achieved
in less than two years,” said Bruce Shulan, CEO of PRIMMA and Chief
Restructuring Officer of PRI. “Through operational improvements to
deliver greater efficiencies, implementing forward-looking business
practices, and most importantly, continued focus on our exemplary
service to our insureds, we strive towards our goal to be the premier
medical malpractice insurance carrier in New York State.”

On the operations side, PRI installed a new, wholly-owned
attorney-in-fact, PRIMMA, and invested in several technology upgrades to
better serve insureds. The company’s new “PRI Connect” tools include
electronic filing of applications, instant online price quotes, and
online claims servicing.

“On behalf of the Board of Governors of PRI, I thank Bruce and the
restructuring team for their contributions to the turnaround,” added Dr.
Barry Fisher, Chairman of PRI. “With streamlined and enhanced
operations, stronger broker relationships, and a renewed commitment to
our insureds, we are confident that PRI can continue to be a leader in
New York medical malpractice insurance, as we have been for more than 35
