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 twenty-five 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.
In June 2014, KAMMCO formed two new subsidiary companies; KAMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. and KAMMCO Casualty, Inc. The new business units expand KAMMCO’s Kansas medical professional liability insurance business profile by offering expertise to parties interested in health information exchange infrastructure development and data analytics services as well and lines of insurance beyond medical professional liability on a national scale. Today KAMMCO is an advocacy organization whose mission is to be a trusted source of innovative insurance and technology solutions designed to meet the unique needs of our network of connected healthcare communities.
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, interoperability, and the use of patient data to facilitate research and improve patient outcomes across the nation.
