Physicians Insurance A Mutual Company has been upgraded to an A- (Excellent) rating by A.M. Best Company, the leading insurance-company rating agency. In its news release on April 23, 2008, A. M.

We continue to be recognized for our outstanding claims service, and we have made tremendous achievements in the areas of patient safety and new insurance products that are responsive to the unique needs of Northwest physicians. Our continual efforts have enabled us to move forward, so that today our financial condition is the strongest in the company’s history and we are well positioned for the future.”
