NEW YORK, July 01, 2019 – MagnaCare, a leader in health plan management, network rental, medical management and casualty solutions, is partnering with MLMIC Insurance Company on a new discount program that offers our New York providers the potential to save significantly through the association with MLMIC on their medical liability insurance premiums.
Through the partnership with MLMIC, part of the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies and the largest writer of medical professional liability insurance in New York, qualifying MagnaCare participating providers receive a discount of up to 12% when they participate in joint legal defense and a risk management course. Our providers may also qualify for additional discounts, including MLMIC’s claims free discount (7.5% or 12%), a no-consent option discount (5%) and an annual prepay discount (2%).
MagnaCare exclusively endorses MLMIC to offer these discounts to its qualifying participating providers, who also gain access to MLMIC’s, New York-focused benefits at no extra charge, including:
- MLMIC Risk Protect: New York-specific risk management services designed to help manage risk, reduce exposure and prevent adverse outcomes

“We’re proud to bring these savings to MagnaCare’s New York participating providers and to offer them access to MLMIC’s valuable benefits and locally-based services,” says Rondi Rabuse, President of Network. “I’m always looking for ways to bring more value to our providers, and MLMIC is exclusively committed to New York medical professionals.”
“MLMIC’s New York focus – a commitment that spans over four decades – means we can offer MagnaCare participating providers in the state the kind of expertise they need. MLMIC understands what it means to be a provider in cities and communities across New York,” says MLMIC Chief Medical Officer John Lombardo, M.D. “In addition, through our relationship with Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., MLMIC has access to greater resources for physicians and other healthcare providers than ever before.”
