MagMutual announces it will continue its hotel reimbursement program for PolicyOwners in 2021
January 15, 2021
The program, launched in 2020, reimburses frontline PolicyOwners for hotel stays and temporary housing incurred due to COVID-19
ATLANTA (January 19, 2021) – MagMutual, one of the leading providers of healthcare liability insurance, announced today that it will extend its hotel reimbursement program for PolicyOwners. While there were hopes that the coronavirus would have faded by early 2021, the unfortunate reality is many MagMutual PolicyOwners remain on the medical front lines, putting themselves and their family members in harm’s way.
"We, the MagMutual Foundation board, are proud to continue our program of assisting frontline PolicyOwners in their fight to save lives during this COVID-19 pandemic," said John Antalis, MD, MagMutual Foundation chairman. "We are honored to support them in helping to protect themselves and their family members."
The program, funded by the MagMutual Foundation, provides reimbursement to PolicyOwners who stay in hotels or temporary housing to shield those they live with from exposure to the coronavirus. PolicyOwners who previously received the benefit and reached the maximum aggregate reimbursement amount in 2020 are eligible to reapply in 2021. More details on the program and how to apply can be found on the company’s website, MagMutual.com.
“At MagMutual we are always looking for ways to help our PolicyOwners”, said Dr. Bill Kanich, MD, JD, chief medical officer, MagMutual. “The COVID-19 hotel benefit is another way that we can use the resources of the MagMutual Foundation to help our PolicyOwners and their loved ones during these unsettled times, and is part of our commitment to put our PolicyOwners’ interests first in all that we do.”
