This organization was created by physicians and their medical societies out of a crisis when insurance was unavailable to the medical community. As the West’s first truly physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, MIEC has always been guided by the desire to protect physicians and the practice of medicine. We exist to foster enduring partnerships within the healthcare community by serving our members through a philosophy of vigorous protection and high value, delivered by people who care.
We believe in reducing the expense of providing Medical Professional Liability Insurance through:
Careful risk selection, stable and responsible pricing,
Fairness and transparency in charging premiums that reflect the different risk characteristics of our members,
Professional and uncompromising claim defense,
Practical and effective Patient Safety initiatives that improve outcomes and reduce the number and severity of claims,
Sensible investment of financial assets and,
Efficient internal operations staffed by experienced professionals.
