New Name for MedAmerica Mutual Risk Retention Group

The Mutual Friday, August 31, 2012

In June 2012, the owners of MedAmerica Mutual Risk Retention Group voted to change the company’s name to The Mutual Risk Retention Group, Inc. Starting September 1, 2012, we’ll be known simply as The Mutual.

The name change was motivated to avoid marketplace confusion as several non-related companies use “MedAmerica” in their names.  As The Mutual has distinguished itself from the rest of the industry throughout its history in the manner in which it conducts its business, the owners wanted the company’s name to do so as well.

The Mutual insures emergency and acute care groups, physicians and their physician assistants and nurse practitioners in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

The Mutual is committed to remaining true to its core principles of providing broad insurance coverage; developing focused and effective patient safety programs in collaboration with our insureds; defending our insureds vigorously when they are involved in medical liability litigation; and always responding fairly to all claims.

The Mutual is a physician-directed, controlled and governed professional liability insurer specializing in serving emergency physicians, acute care specialists and their medical groups.  MedAmerica Mutual Risk Retention Group, Inc., is rated A- (Stable) by A.M. Best & Co., the nation’s premier insurance company financial rating organization. The Company has grown in financial strength in each of the past nineteen years while saving policyholders premium dollars in the process.
