“I was hesitant to meet with their representative. Southern Protective Group compared coverage and rates with several highly rated insurers. Bottom line… I could get better coverage and maintain “control” of settlement issues while cutting my premium in half or more through Medicus, an “A” rated insurer.” – Clement P. Cotter, Jr., MD, MBA
