Involvement in the member-owned and member-directed organization provides increased capacity and allows these small insurers to respond to the needs and demands of their insureds with innovative products and services in a very cost-effective manner.
The FMRP employs a full-time staff knowledgeable in the areas of underwriting, claims, loss control, and provides this expertise to members on an ongoing basis. FMRP also complies with government reporting requirements on behalf of its members.
