Boston, MA - October 3, 2012 - Leading medical professional liability insurance provider Coverys is pleased to announce that Coverys RRG, Inc. has received a financial strength rating of A- (Excellent) and an issuer credit rating of “a-” from A.M. Best Company. The outlook assigned to both ratings is positive.

Hanson, CEO and president of Coverys. “We understand that a strong financial base for all our member companies is imperative in ensuring the success of our services and programs, and ultimately our policyholders.
