ISMIE Mutual Supports Independent Doctors with New Discount Program
October 7, 2019
Association of Independent Doctors partners with ISMIE to offer members medical liability benefit.
Chicago, IL – ISMIE Mutual Insurance Company is pleased to announce a new affinity program partnership with the Association of Independent Doctors (AID). This national program is open to all AID members in good standing. When they choose ISMIE for their medical liability coverage, AID members receive a 10 percent premium discount and gain access to ISMIE’s risk management services and other exceptional benefits. Based upon individual underwriting, AID members will also be eligible for additional premium discounts. To establish this program, AID collaborated with ISMIE-Endorsed broker, HUB International.
“This new partnership aligns perfectly with ISMIE’s expansion plan given ISMIE’s history as a physician-founded insurer,” said ISMIE Chairman Paul H. DeHaan, M.D. He added, “ISMIE understands what drives AID members and looks forward to standing with them as an ally as they care for patients.”
“We had been looking to partner with a national medical liability insurance company that shared our values and mission,” said Marni Jameson Carey, AID’s executive director. “ISMIE is a perfect fit for AID as it is a highly respected, reliable carrier that can write medical professional liability insurance in all 50 states, and is committed to protecting doctors.” Moreover, she added, “By helping independent doctors’ bottom lines, we help them survive in a challenging market.”
Global brokerage firm HUB International is also part of the new alliance. Its nationwide team of agents will work to process applications for AID members seeking the discount benefit. The program, which had a soft launch in August, is, as of this week, available to all AID members nationwide.
“We truly support the philosophy and mission of AID as an association,” said Daniel Nissi, HUB’s Chief Marketing Officer, HUB Healthcare. “We have a great rapport with ISMIE and feel they offer the experience, knowledge and bandwidth to make this medical professional liability program successful.”
