We're pleased to present this comprehensive guide to our 2017 Risk Education offerings.
SVMIC was founded in 1976 at a time when physicians nationwide faced an insurance crisis that threatened their very livelihood. That's why a group of Tennessee physicians got together and formed one of the first organizations in the nation created by physicians to insure their own medical liability risk. Now, as we proudly celebrate our 40th anniversary, our commitment to you is stronger than ever.
SVMIC is a mutual insurance company that is 100% owned and operated by our policyholders. This means that when you become a policyholder, you become an owner of our company, too. Governed by a board of directors consisting almost entirely of physicians, we insure medical professionals in Tennessee, Arkansas, Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
We provide medical practice liability insurance at net cost. Each year, premiums are set and collected based on projected needs to ensure that SVMIC maintains financial stability. In future years, if premiums collected exceed that need, these excess revenues are returned to policyholders as dividends.Read More about SVMIC
