As a MLMIC policyholder, it’s likely you’ve chosen us as your medical professional liability insurance (MPLI) provider for demonstrating the highest level of financial stability and security in New York State: we’re not only New York State’s leading MPLI provider, but we also have the State’s most experienced and highly regarded claims staff. In fact, MLMIC has successfully defended more NY physicians than any other NY medical liability insurer. These extremely important protections are there in case you need them, but did you know we also offer a host of additional benefits and resources that can help you in your daily practice?
The experienced healthcare attorneys at Fager Amsler Keller & Schoppmann, LLP, assist policyholders with a wide range of legal services during normal business hours, including advisory opinions on liability issues, liability litigation activities, lecture programs, consulting services and legal audits/assessments. And of course, policyholders can access 24/7 legal support by calling (855) FAKS-LAW or emailing hotline@FAKSLAW.com.
Educating healthcare professionals helps improve patient care and ultimately reduces the number of claims and losses. Comprehensive risk management programs from MLMIC can minimize the liability exposure of MLMIC-insured hospitals and long-term care facilities, as well as that of its physician, surgeon and dentist policyholders. In addition, we continue to develop online educational programs that address risk management topics pertinent to all medical specialties.
MLMIC’s Risk Management Department also offers insureds a number of additional services:
- consulting services;
- medical office and group practice surveys and assessments;
- on-site education programs for physicians and staff;
- annual risk management seminar;
- regional network meetings;
- policy and procedure audits;
- departmental focused surveys;
- biomedical and general liability surveys;
- annual risk assessment and questionnaire and
- the MLMIC Research Library.
We encourage you to contact our Risk Management Department at (212) 576-9601 to learn how these resources can benefit you.
True peer review
MLMIC’s Merit Rating Plan permits true peer review. In fact, our program is so successful, MLMIC remains the only medical liability insurer not required to use New York State’s mandated automatic surcharge table. MLMIC never non-renews or surcharges a policy on the basis of claims history without first submitting it for review by your peers.
Commitment to New York’s healthcare providers
Finally, there’s a reason MLMIC is the only professional liability insurer that has the endorsement of the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY), the endorsement of the New York State Dental Association (NYSDA) and endorsements from more than 60 state, county medical and specialty societies and 10 state component dental societies. MLMIC is a company founded by, and for, New York’s medical community, and that continues to be a quality that benefits our policyholders every day. For more than 40 years, we have delivered trusted protection at reasonable rates and with a high degree of personal service.
