Doctor Discounts

MSMA's Member Benefit Partners are third-party vendors and companies who offer special deals and services often at reduced rates for our members.  While MSMA analyzes the quality of each Member Benefit Partner and their offerings, we do not guarantee any product or service will be right for you.  Before you make a purchase, we recommend you perform your own due diligence.

Mississippi Physicians Care Network recognizes that the cornerstone of healthcare isn’t managed care. It’s the doctor-patient relationship.

That’s why Mississippi Physicians Care Network includes thousands of doctors and specialists, compared to only hundreds in other networks. We supplement more than 100 hospitals statewide with centers of excellence like Ochsner, the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and University Medical Center – Mississippi’s only teaching hospital and nationally recognized research center . . . all for a price your company and your employees can afford. Mississippi Physicians Care Network is sponsored by the Mississippi State Medical Association, sharing its core purpose to advance the ethical practice of medicine and ensure high quality, physician-directed patient care. With the strength of the state’s medical profession behind us, we’re the network working to establish the healthcare delivery and service support systems that empower physicians to provide the most appropriate care for their patients.  The right healthcare, at the right place, at the right price.



In 1976, as a result of a medical malpractice crisis that existed in Mississippi, members of the Mississippi State Medical Association joined together to establish Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi. During these difficult times in the medical profession, many physicians could not purchase medical malpractice insurance for any price and chose to join together to create their own professional liability company to serve and support their needs.

After 40 years, MACM's purpose remains the same today as it was when the company was founded...to provide quality, affordable coverage to physicians living and practicing in the state of Mississippi. Medical Assurance Company was established by Mississippians to protect and serve only Mississippi physicians.

MACM's insureds benefit from physician involvement at every level. The Board of Directors and Committees consist entirely of practicing Mississippi physicians. Important decisions affecting insureds are made by their peers and by people who have vast experience with Mississippi's medical/legal environment.

Actuarially sound rates protect the financial integrity of the Company and premium refunds are given to insureds when appropriate. In 2014, MACM's A-(Excellent) rating was upgraded to A (Excellent) by the A.M. Best Company, the premier national rating service for insurance companies. This rating reflects the Company's continued profitability, excellent level of capitalization, conservative loss reserving philosophy, and strong market position within the Mississippi physician marketplace.

MACM is not under pressure to maximize profits in order to satisfy stockholders. Long-term stability for the Company is priority one and drives the decision-making process.

No company in Mississippi offers greater stability or member services than Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi. With nearly 3,000 policies in force, MACM provides coverage for more Mississippi physicians than all other companies writing in the state combined.
