Mon, October 16, 2017 11:07 AM | Babette Grey (Administrator)

MLMIC has released its Fall 2017 issue of MLMIC’s Dateline® newsletter.  Published twice a year (spring and fall), Dateline® focuses on risk management issues and improving patient safety, as well as keeping MLMIC policyholders apprised of changes in underwriting procedures, legal matters, legislative affairs, and many other matters of interest to physicians and healthcare facilities

In the Fall issue:
