2020 Annual Report
The year 2020 was one of challenge and change to people around the world, much of it centered on health care. Pressures on Doctors mounted when non-urgent and elective procedures and appointments were halted. Recognizing the pandemic-induced reduction in patient contacts, MEDICAL MUTUAL provided a Pandemic Credit of 25% that provided immediate financial relief. This was in addition to the standard premium credits, Policyholder dividend credits, and another allocation to your account in our loyalty and quality recognition program, the Mutual Advantage Plan. As care was forced to shift away from in-person visits, we changed our underwriting guidelines to allow initial patient care to take place without an in-person, face-to-face visit to provide greater access to new patients in need of care during the pandemic.
We invite you to peruse our 2020 Annual Report to discover how your Doctor-owned and directed insurance company stood by you with the support you deserved.
Our financial reward program recognizes your dedication to providing quality medicine, day in and day out.
We created the Mutual Advantage Plan (MAP) financial reward program to recognize the commitment of our Physician policyholders and their dedication to the long-term success and stability of MEDICAL MUTUAL, and their continued practice of quality medicine. Each year, our Board of Directors may announce new funds, if any, to be allocated to MAP accounts, as a percentage of each Participant's base premium.
MAP is free to join, and will never affect your policy or your premium. No strings attached — it is simply our way of recognizing your commitment.
Am I Eligible?
An eligible Participant of the Mutual Advantage Plan is a full-time or part-time health care provider named on an individual or group policy of medical professional liability insurance issued by MEDICAL MUTUAL, but only if the health care provider is individually rated and underwritten. "Participant" does not include a business entity or a health care provider who is not individually rated and underwritten. The Plan applies solely to individuals.
We recommend you contact us or your Producer to determine your eligibility.
If you are already enrolled in MAP, log in to your account to view your current MAP balance and for further information.
