Sprague Israel Giles, Inc. (SIG) is very pleased to announce this great news that we are offering a 50% first-year premium discount to new grads!

This is not a policy with reduced insurance coverage. It is the same comprehensive policy offered to established NDs – but at reduced rate. SIG recognizes that it takes time to establish a successful practice. But newly licensed NDs still need excellent malpractice insurance that covers what NDs actually do in clinical practice.

So to help during the first two years, coverage is offered at dramatically discounted pricing. The first year’s premium is reduced by 50%, and the second year’s premium is reduced by 25%. This pricing will be offered to all new graduates who have not been previously insured.

For clinic owners, this new pricing will better enable you to access to the most comprehensive malpractice insurance available to NDs, reducing the concern about taking on additional liability and expense as your new clinicians establish their practices.

SIG’s Natural Insurance program:

• Reduces risk and expense to clinic owners.
• Offers the same comprehensive malpractice coverage available to established NDs.
• Promotes residency opportunities for new grads.
• Applies to all new grads, regardless of work arrangement (resident, employee, independent contractor, sole proprietor etc.).
• Is available to NDs working in licensed as well as non-licensed states

SIG is the exclusive provider of Natural Insurance, an affordable professional insurance program designed for NDs, by NDs. Through SIG, Naturopaths have access to a policy that covers many common naturopathic modalities that are either not available or are too costly with other insurance carriers.

But it’s not all business for Sprague Israel Giles. The firm is well known in the Pacific Northwest for their proud history of community involvement. The firm’s principals and many employees have served on nonprofit boards and regularly volunteer their time to nonprofit agencies, many of which are SIG clients.

SIG is proud to support Naturopathic Medical Student Association (NMSA) as Corporate Sponsor and our sponsorship contributions will be used to further professional development and residency opportunities for NMSA members.

SIG is also known for their advocacy, especially as it concerns access to health care. Washington state legislators have heard SIG employees testify many times in support of bills that would improve coverage, lower costs, or make health care more accessible.

But SIG’s primary focus is always to serve clients, and this is reflected by the regular feedback from satisfied Naturopathic Doctors. One wrote, “I am very impressed with SIG’s follow through, expertise and professionalism. I am excited to get on board with your company for my malpractice needs. I have already referred another ND friend to contact you for coverage.”

For SIG, it can’t get better than that.
