In May 1988, the Kansas Medical Society (KMS) House of Delegates authorized the formation of a mutual professional liability insurance company for Kansas physicians. As a result, in June of 1989, Kansas Medical Mutual Insurance Company (KAMMCO) began operations for the purpose of:
- Creating market competition.
- Stabilizing insurance rates.
- Developing a highly effective, professional claims philosophy.
- Assuring a sustainable source of professional liability insurance.
In the thirty years that followed KAMMCO has established a reputation of being pro-healthcare professional in the defense of claims, tireless in its efforts as an advocacy organization, and proactive in the development of loss prevention resources and educational opportunities. KAMMCO’s success as a financially secure, operationally sound, relentless advocate presents the organization the ability to reinvest in the healthcare industry in a manner which benefits both its members and the patients they serve.
Protection of members is the foundation upon which KAMMCO was constructed. The KAMMCO business and reinvestment model, when woven together with the expertise and experience of nationally respected insurance and health information exchange executives, creates a unique opportunity for KAMMCO to partner in healthcare transformation.
