About Us

History of LAMMICO

Louisiana’s leading medical professional liability insurance carrier has grown to serve the southern United States

LAMMICO serves more Louisiana physicians than any other medical professional liability insurance carrier.

Before our founding in 1981, a medical malpractice insurance crisis gripped Louisiana. Out-of-state carriers charged medical professionals exorbitant rates. In response, a group of Louisiana physicians formed LAMMICO as a mutual company, so that policyholders are also the owners of the company.

Thanks to the support of the medical community over the years, today we are Louisiana’s leading provider of medical professional liability insurance. Over the years, we have adapted to meet the needs of a wider segment of the healthcare community, expanding our service area beyond Louisiana, and providing insurance to healthcare professionals, hospitals and facilities in Arkansas, Mississippi Texas, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

We offer coverage for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, CRNAs, dentists, and advanced and allied healthcare providers, as well as hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, long-term care facilities and other healthcare facilities. We are more than your insurance company. We are your peers and your partners.
