What makes PIAM different from the traditional insurance agency?
Physicians Insurance Agency of Massachusetts, PIAM, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Massachusetts Medical Society. We work exclusively with physicians, medical practices and health care organizations, and have a very specific understanding of the issues confronting today's health care providers.
PIAM was created in 1993 in response to the Medical Society's desire to offer their members information, professionalism and choice. For this reason, PIAM actively seeks out alternative insurance markets, and works to develop special programs with enhanced coverages and premium discounts.
PIAM has made it a point to partner with other health care services. We have added a variety of practice-based solutions, such as health care apparel, staffing, medical supplies and banking, to contain costs and streamline administration.
PIAM presents a number of seminars to practice managers and physicians of all ages, ranging from Basic Financial Planning, Employment Contracting, and Asset Protection to Medical Malpractice Insurance and Data Breach. Each spring, PIAM speaks to the graduating class of Harvard Medical School to address the graduates' insurance and financial issues.
PIAM donates money each year to support the MMS Alliance Charitable Foundation and Physician Health Services. For many years we have also helped to support the Community Health Center of Cape Cod,a non-profit provider of primary and preventive health services.
