Announcing CHART Institute's 15th Anniversary Award

Member owned. Expertly managed.

Take care of your patients. We'll take care of you.



CHART members are carefully selected, and they share in the rewards of our risk management and patient safety efforts. Our long-term investment approach to patient care and safety provides a member experience unlike any offered by traditional insurance carriers.

CHART offers primary and excess professional liability and general liability coverage in Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Flexible limits are available for hospitals and employed physicians. For physicians, occurrence or claims-made coverage is available.

Our low rates are driven by low overhead, little member turnover, no income taxes, and our members’ commitment to safety.

Physicians’ professional liability coverage is available for physicians who practice primarily at member hospitals.  Various limit structures are available, including separate limits for each provider.

Our underwriting is selective and our rates reflect CHART’s low overhead, low client turnover and no income tax liability as a reciprocal carrier.
