MICA is a physician-owned and directed mutual insurance company. We were founded in 1976 after the largest medical professional liability (MPL) insurance carrier announced it was no longer writing MPL insurance coverage for the physicians of Arizona. Founded by Arizona physicians, with a loan from the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA), MICA offers stability through the peaks and valleys of the insurance cycle.
Today we provide medical professional liability insurance in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah, and have been a market leader for more than forty years. Over the years, we have proven our value to our members, with stable pricing, prudent underwriting principles, outstanding risk management programs and an experienced claim staff. We truly value the loyalty and trust that our members place in MICA.
Our mission is to protect and defend the practice of medicine in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and Utah. Our vision is to be the insurance company of choice for physicians and their groups, medical facilities and advanced healthcare professionals. Our values include outstanding service to our members, affordable insurance coverage, prudent underwriting principles, relevant risk management programs to educate and protect our members, aggressive defense of claims, and returning dividends to our members when financial conditions warrant. Since our founding, we have distributed more than half a billion dollars in dividends to our qualifying members.*
