2019 Annual Report
You are dedicated to providing the highest quality patient care at your practice. We are committed to providing you with the strongest possible defense in the event of a claim.
MEDICAL MUTUAL has been providing superior defense and advocacy for the Doctors of Maryland since our creation in 1975. As a Doctor-owned and directed company, we share your values and understand your needs and concerns. We believe that our strength begins with our gold-standard claims defense team, superior risk management education programs and online resources, excellent customer service and our long-term financial stability. But we are most proud that we never stop trying to do more for our Insureds, such as our Mutual Advantage Plan financial reward program and our most recently introduced coverage, Verdict Inflation Protection.
I invite you to peruse our 2019 Annual Report, It's in Our DNA, to discover for yourself the ways that MEDICAL MUTUAL does more for you.
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?
