Premium Deferment and Other Support from COPIC
NMA-Endorsed Medical Liability Insurance Carrier COPIC is committed to supporting NMA and its members during this time. One of the ways COPIC is doing this is by lessening the financial impact of COVID-19 for its policyholders.

  • COPIC policyholders have the option of deferring their premium payments until September 1, 2020.
  • The deferment option is available for both new and existing policyholders, including those who choose to switch their coverage to COPIC midterm.
  • No late payment or finance charges.

In addition, COPIC policyholders have direct access to expert support to help navigate COVID-19 challenges through its Legal and HR Helplines, as well as a 24/7 Risk Management Hotline, which connects you with an experienced physician. COPIC has also set up a COVID-19 Physician Program policy that will provide temporary liability coverage that can be accessed by existing policyholders who have a need.  Contact your current agent or contact Kristin Stepien at 800-421-1834 x 6186 + kstepien@copic.com.
