Forty years ago, physicians across the nation were faced with a crisis - many commercial insurance carriers were unwilling to provide medical malpractice coverage or would offer it only at exorbitant rates. In direct response to the crisis, leadership of state medical societies throughout the country founded medical professional liability insurance companies to bring affordability and stability to the insurance marketplace. Leadership of the Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) recommended the formation of Louisiana Medical Mutual Insurance Company (LAMMICO) in August 1981. LAMMICO, a policyholder owned and governed company, issued its first policy effective January 1, 1982.
Today through LAMMICO and LAMMICO RRG, we now insure providers and healthcare facilities in nine states by consistently offering affordable rates for medical professional liability insurance. LAMMICO is committed to providing unparalleled service to its policyholders, while meeting the specialized needs of the medical professionals and healthcare facilities we serve.
In its 40 years, LAMMICO has grown from being an idea in the minds of a progressive group of physicians to the Company that now insures over 8,000 healthcare professionals and facilities. LAMMICO continues to expand its insurance products and service territories to meet the needs of the regional healthcare industry.
We are extremely proud and honored to have been your enduring partner for the past 40 years and look forward to serving you for many years to come. 2022 will be an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 40th anniversary!
