Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company.

A.M. Best Company is a leading insurance rating organization whose ratings are recognized worldwide as a benchmark for assessing insurers’ financial strength. The A- (Excellent) with “Stable Outlook” rating is assigned only to select companies that have an excellent ability to meet their ongoing obligations to policyholders.
