In the past, the ability to negotiate a lower premium always ranked highest. Last year 61% of employers said that was highly important, but that number dropped to 27% this year.

These survey results got our attention … in a positive way. Why? Frankly, the results reinforce our broker-focused business and service model.

When it comes to service at MGIS, we put our money where our mouth is. To give physician groups reassurance that claims will be taken care of properly, we offer service guarantees that cover claims turnaround time, financial accuracy, and even response time to phone calls. If we do not meet these service standards while the contract is in effect, the policyholder is given a payment—calculated as a percentage of the policyholder’s annual premium, up to 3%.
