The Medical Society of Virginia
The Medical Society of Virginia (MSV), which was founded in 1821, is a physician led organization comprised of five entities - the membership association (MSV), the MSV Foundation, the MSV Political Action Committee and the MSV Insurance Agency. These entities staff professional teams to work each day to advocate for Virginia's physicians. Our advocacy takes many forms including professional advocacy, legislative/political advocacy, patient advocacy and business advocacy.
The MSV Insurance Agency
The Medical Society of Virginia identified business insurance as an area where advocacy was needed. Under the direction of MSV's executive committee of physicians, a dedicated agency was founded in 1999 to offer advice, service and programs superior to what is available in the general marketplace.
Since the MSV Insurance Agency is wholly owned by the MSV, it serves the MSV as a source of non-dues revenue and is essentially owned by physicians. Purchasing insurance through us is an excellent way to support the physician community. The profits generated from the commission income paid by the insurance company to the MSV Insurance Agency go back into the MSV. These funds support organized medicine by helping the MSV provide services to physicians. The funds also help champion the MSV's initiatives in support of Virginia physicians.
The MSV Insurance Agency is proud of the reputation it has earned in the physician community as it has served the insurance needs of physicians. It is also proud to be owned by MSV with its long history of serving Virginia physicians.
