Invoice Cloud and Paper Invoice Update
In July 2021, MICA launched a new invoicing and payment portal powered by Invoice Cloud® that has allowed us to provide you with more convenient payment options and the ability to receive invoices electronically. To ensure a smooth transition, MICA has continued sending paper invoices along with email notifications regardless of individuals’ paperless preferences.
Beginning January 1, 2022, paper invoices will be sent only to policyholders that have opted out of paperless invoicing. All other policyholders will receive their invoices electronically at the email address on file in Invoice Cloud®.
MICA has implemented enhanced security features for MICA's invoicing and payment services powered by Invoice Cloud®. This update includes changing the way Practice Managers log into and manage their accounts. While we acknowledge and apologize for the inconvenience of this update, please know that these enhancements are intended to protect the security of all accounts.To verify your paperless preference, log in to the MICA member portal. After logging in, click on "View My Invoices or Pay My Premium" and then click the button "Access Your Online Payment Options and Invoices". From here, you will be redirected to Invoice Cloud® to verify your paperless preference and email address for invoices.
MICA Announces $17 Million Dividend
The Mutual Insurance Company of Arizona (MICA) announced today that its Board of Trustees has declared a policyholder dividend* of $17 million to be allocated among participating policyholders who are current MICA members as of December 31, 2021, to be distributed in February 2022.
Each member’s share of the 2021 dividend is calculated based on each member’s proportion of uninterrupted earned premium relative to the company’s total earned premium over the three-year period beginning January 1, 2019 and ending December 31, 2021.
For policyholders insured by MICA for the full three-year period, the dividend represents approximately 20% of their 2021 annual earned premium. The policyholder dividend is derived from a combination of favorable claims experience and strong investment performance.
Following the February 2022 dividend distribution, MICA will have returned $700 million in dividends to its policyholders since 1988, including $125 million in the last five years alone.
*The dividend declared for the 2021 policy year reﬂects the company’s ﬁnancial performance. Past performance does not guarantee future dividends. This policy has exclusions, limitations, and terms under which the policy may be continued in force or discontinued. For costs and complete details of coverage, contact your insurance agent or MICA.
