TMLT is now offering extended business hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. After 8 p.m., callers with urgent issues can follow telephone prompts to report a claim, report a non-claim-related issue, or ask questions.

We are extending our hours to support physicians during the COVID-19 crisis. We will maintain these new hours until further notice.

Our physician board and in-house risk management, claim, and underwriting staff work together to serve and support policyholders. Because we are a Trust, our model is designed to reward policyholders, not stockholders.

  • We give back to our policyholders through discounts, rate reductions, dividends, and our Trust Rewards program.
  • We helped achieve tort reform in Texas in 2003, which resulted in premium savings, reduced litigation, more physicians in Texas, and increased patient safety.
  • Our advocacy has not stopped with the passage of tort reform. We continue to fight for physicians, helping relieve the burden of legislative and regulatory compliance issues.

When physicians join TMLT, they gain a partner — a partner who shares their commitment to practicing safe medicine. We provide a customized approach and a team of risk management professionals to help mitigate risk. Our risk management services include CME courses, on-site practice reviews, and telephone and email consultations.

  • CME course options include home-study programs, online courses, video courses, seminars, and workshops.
  • During a practice review, a risk management professional visits the practice to determine risk exposures. These reviews are free to all policyholders and can be completed without disrupting patient appointments.
