The company continues to be the first pick by physicians and surgeons in Missouri, as evidenced by its 36 continuous quarters as the medical professional liability carrier that leads Missouri in direct written premiums.

We plan to continue to provide our insureds with financially sound and actuarially sustainable premiums to meet physicians' evolving needs now and in the future."
