Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company (MLMIC) was formed in 1975, in cooperation with the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY).  It is a mutual professional liability insurance company, which means that it is owned by the healthcare providers it insures.  Management and direction of MLMIC is accomplished through a Board of Directors, comprised of physicians, dentists, and hospital administrators.  Policyholders have full voting rights on management issues.  Headquartered in Manhattan, MLMIC has field representatives throughout the State, as well as three regional offices in Syracuse, East Meadow, and the Albany area. 

  • Solid Protection Against Claims

MLMIC has the largest, most experienced claims staff in New York State and has successfully defended more physicians and surgeons than all other New York insurers combined.

MLMIC's emphasis has always been on policyholder equity, quality, and reasonableness of cost.  MLMIC’s underwriting staff responds to policyholders'needs by effectively evaluating and servicing the professional liability risks for physicians and surgeons.

  • Continuing Education and Risk Management

MLMIC's Risk Management Department provides physicians with frequent and expanded educational programming.  MLMIC is accredited by MSSNY to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. Satisfactory completion of these courses allows physicians to earn CME credits and premium discounts, as well as qualify for participation in the medical malpractice excess insurance program. 

  • Legal Assistance

MLMIC's knowledgeable attorneys are available during normal business hours to assist policyholders with a wide range of legal services, including, but not limited to, advisory opinions concerning liability issues, liability litigation activities, lecture programs, consulting services, and legal audits and assessments.
