MACM Insurance Services, Inc., was created in 1997 by Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi (MACM) to offer additional lines of insurance to the healthcare industry. Hospitals were the primary focus at the time, since 80 percent of the claims against MACM insured physicians originated in the hospital setting. As a result, we began to offer Hospital Professional Liability (HPL) insurance to Mississippi hospitals with a joint risk management initiative designed to minimize risk.
The ever increasing liability exposures within medical offices have created additional insurance needs, so other lines have been added to the agency's arsenal. Personnel and management issues, Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse, and HIPAA all pose a threat to healthcare providers. Responding to those needs, MACM Insurance Services, Inc. offers Directors and Officers Liability, Employment Practices Liability and, a Physicians Regulatory Insurance program, which provides defense and indemnity for alleged billing improprieties and HIPAA violations. As various companies introduce new and beneficial lines of insurance to the healthcare industry, our agency will seek to expand and offer these unique products to our clients.
