New Certificate of Insurance Services

May 21, 2015 Laura Hale Brockway

We would like to help you with your paperwork.

Physicians associated with a hospital are often required to provide a Certificate of Insurance (COI) to the hospital in order to receive or maintain hospital staff privileges. Instead of physicians retrieving, printing and delivering this document themselves, TMLT will now directly provide our policyholders' COI to their hospital administrators upon request.

With this service, a hospital administrator has the option of retrieving a TMLT policyholder's COI from our online member portal, myTMLT, or requesting it directly from our Underwriting Department. This service was designed to create more efficiency and greater security for our members' credentials.

If you, as a policyholder, would like to take advantage of this service or have previously “opted in,” you don’t have to take any further action. Service will be added to your TMLT and TMIC policies beginning June 1, 2015.

However, if you do not want to take advantage of this service, you may “opt out” by contacting the Underwriting Department and requesting that all COIs be sent to you, so that you may then forward them to your hospital administrator yourself.

Whether you decide to opt in or opt out of this service, you may still log in to myTMLT to access and print your COI at any time. 

If you have any questions about this service, please contact your agent or call the TMLT Underwriting Department at 800-580-8658.
