These podcasts are taken from the live webinars Lunch & Learn and Lunch & Law, from the Case Closed series, and from A Few Minutes with MICA. They are produced by Risk Management Services at the Mutual Insurance Company of Arizona (MICA). The Lunch & Learn podcasts are a series of health care topics pertaining to physicians and their offices from a risk management perspective. The Lunch and Law series examines medicolegal aspects of physicians' practices from the perspective of a defense attorney. The Case Closed series examines closed medical malpractice claims from a specialty physician, claims department, and risk management perspective. A Few Minutes with MICA are succinct topics of interest aim at our policyholders.
MICA is a physician-owned and directed mutual insurance company. We were founded in 1976 after the largest medical professional liability (MPL) insurance carrier announced it was no longer writing MPL insurance coverage for the physicians of Arizona. Founded by Arizona physicians, with a loan from the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA), MICA offers stability through the peaks and valleys of the insurance cycle.
Today we provide medical professional liability insurance in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah, and have been a market leader for nearly forty years. Over the years, we have proven our value to our members, with stable pricing, prudent underwriting principles, outstanding risk management programs and an experienced claim staff. We truly value the loyalty and trust that our members place in MICA.
