Insurance by doctors, for doctors.

The Medical Society of Virginia (MSV), which was founded in 1820, is a physician led organization comprised of four entities - the membership association (MSV), the MSV Foundation, the MSV Political Action Committee, and 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.

MSVIA is a full-service independent insurance agency staffed with specialists in property and casualty, and life and health insurance, who are dedicated to assisting Virginia physician offices with their insurance needs and concerns. MSVIA is proud of its dedication and service to Virginia physicians and the voice of medicine.
