SVMIC is a mutual insurance company that is 100% owned and governed 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 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
