The Doctors Company Purchases New York’s HIC, FOJP Service Corporation

August 5, 2019

The Doctors Company has completed the purchase of Hospitals Insurance Company (HIC), a New York State admitted and licensed insurance company, and FOJP Service Corporation, a New York service organization that provides third-party comprehensive insurance and risk management advisory services to HIC-insured hospitals. The purchase price is $650 million, subject to closing adjustments.

Proceeds from the transaction will be returned to the not-for-profit hospitals that owned and founded HIC and FOJP more than 30 years ago—The Mount Sinai Hospital and Beth Israel Medical Center, Montefiore Health System, and Maimonides Medical Center.

The close of this transaction is also the inception of Healthcare Risk Advisors (HRA), a new business unit within the TDC Group, which will succeed FOJP and focus on third-party comprehensive insurance and risk management advisory services, including management of the self-insured programs of large healthcare organizations in New York and beyond.

HIC will continue to exist as an admitted New York–domiciled insurer providing coverage for hospitals, physicians affiliated with HIC’s insured hospitals and long-term care facilities and social services agencies.

HIC and FOJP employees will become part of HRA and continue to provide the same services to HIC, the member hospitals, long-term care facilities and social services agencies as prior to the transaction.

HRA and HIC will be led by Noeleen Doelger as chief operating and financial officer and Robert A. Kauffman as president. Walter Harris, who served as president and CEO of HIC and FOJP prior to the transaction, will assume a consulting role with the TDC Group and report to Richard E. Anderson, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company.
