The Life of PRMS: Denny Rodriguez, Vice President, Claims
For almost 20 years, it has been an honor to defend psychiatrists, psychiatry and the practice of medicine through my claims work at PRMS.
I am proud to be a part of a team that looks at what it does as “more than an insurance policy.” When other insurance carriers less experienced in psychiatry would exclude things like electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) or transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or telepsychiatry, PRMS choose to automatically include program coverage for such practices as they were and are a part of psychiatric practice. So, if it is part of psychiatry, then we try to ensure that we are covering it because it is psychiatry.
As if the opportunity to help change and shape medical malpractice insurance were not enough, it is really the PRMS staff that make it worthwhile to be here every day. We are truly a collegial group that leverages the strengths of a former ER Nurse Manager, an EMT, a paramedic, attorneys, risk managers, insurance finance experts and insurance professionals. I am truly grateful to have the camaraderie, intellectual challenge and claims handling discipline of our team to help achieve the best legal and claim solutions for our clients. I also am truly grateful to work with all of the talented professionals throughout PRMS.
And finally, I am proud to work with the great physician psychiatrists and their staff who we call our clients. I cannot possibly imagine treating people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, dissociative identity disorder or personality disorder, to name a few. So, I am grateful, humbled and proud to help support our clients that work so hard to help make our community better through psychiatry.
