We have your back

HealthCap is the nation’s leader in managing and mitigating senior care liability claims because we manage the situation—not just the claim. Our claims are 34% less costly overall and less expensive at every level of severity than our competition. And we’re fast. We close claims 42% faster than the industry average.

HealthCap returns better claim results than our competitors thanks to proactive response to incidents and aggressive claim defense.

Expert Claims Defense in Every State

We win defense verdicts against the best plaintiff attorneys in the country, because we are experts at defending the modern senior living community claim.  In each state, we have expert defense attorneys dedicated to the long term care sector that are ready to stand up and protect you.

HealthCap Manages Liability Claims Better than the Competition

How does HealthCap achieve such great claim results, year after year? Two reasons: early intervention and expert trial attorneys. First, we intervene early in the lifecycle of a claim, mobilizing powerful resources in managing the incident. Next, if we go to trial, we bring our national trial counsel, attorneys with a proven track record of success. Since 2001, HealthCap has consistently beaten the industry in the two major measures of claim performance: severity of claims, and frequency of claims. What does that mean for you? Lower ongoing costs, fewer disruptions to your operations and preservation of your  reputation.
