The company is now licensed to underwrite in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.

“We’re happy to bring Capson’s new online medical malpractice underwriting technology to healthcare providers in a dozen states, and we anticipate being available in nearly 30 markets by early 2011,” said Capson founder Maury Magids.

In addition, physicians have the ability to consult directly with the Capson management team around the clock.

Capson also offers CapsonCareTM, a patient satisfaction program designed to facilitate stronger physician-patient relationships by gathering feedback from patients via iPad® and other mobile devices immediately following a patient’s visit.
