The medical professional liability (MPL) market has sustained favorable financial results again in 2013. This article reviews the 2013 results overall, attempts to glimpse what the year-end results might have in store, and works to detect changes in the current trends that continue to produce stellar financial results for the MPL segment of the insurance industry. MPL specialty writers, as a whole, enjoyed yet another outstanding year financially. Though the continuation of these outstanding financial results is unsustainable longterm, there is still no clear indication from the year-end 2013 financial statement data that suggests these trends are subsiding.
