Unlike most firms offering professional medical liability insurance in New Jersey, Conventus is owned and fully governed by its membership of medical practices and physicians. In addition to at-cost coverage, Conventus supports members with a full range of professional claims management, patient safety, and information services that allow them to spend less energy managing risk and more practicing good medicine.
