Political Action Committee

Helping to make the practice of medicine stronger in the communities we serve

 

Overview

One of our four business precepts is to maximize our positive influence on the healthcare environment, and we’ve established Political Action Committees to advance that goal at the state level. By contributing to your state’s MagMutual PAC, you can support legislation and candidates that improve the practice and regulation of medicine right where you live and work.

Each state-level PAC has its own PAC board comprised of MagMutual physician committee board members, employees and local PolicyOwners who act as representatives for their state. Contributions and participation are strictly voluntary.

Frequently asked questions

How are the PAC funds being used?
These funds will be deployed to support candidates and advocate for issues that are beneficial to and enhance or protect the status of physicians and other healthcare providers in your state.

 

Is there a designated amount for my contribution?
The board has established a flat $30 contribution for the PAC. Again, this contribution is purely voluntary.

 

Will my contribution be used for political action committees in other states?
No. MagMutual intends to have a separate PAC for each state in which it operates. Each PAC contribution is designated to the policyholders’ home state, and will only be used to support candidates and issues from that one particular state.

 

What if I do not want to participate?
Participation is purely voluntary. Your decision will have no impact on your insurance coverage or premium.

 

If I do not opt-out, will my participation be reported?
Yes. All contribution totals made to the PAC are reported to the state by law. In some states, (e.g. Florida and Virginia), all contributions must be reported with specific detail related to the individual contributor.*

 

Who will determine which candidates to support in my state?
Each state level PAC will have its own PAC board comprised of MagMutual physician committee board members, employees and local policyholders who will act as representatives for your state.
