We provide medical professional liability insurance at net cost. Each year, premiums are set and collected based on projected needs (loss costs, including defense costs, and operating expenses) while ensuring that SVMIC maintains long-term financial stability. In future years, if premiums collected exceed that need, these excess revenues are returned to policyholders as dividends.Read More about SVMIC
