Cogeris to Offer Comprehensive Insurance Tailored to Physicians

St. Louis, MO. December 12, 2014 – Today, the board of directors of Keystone Mutual Insurance, a St. Louis-based medical malpractice insurance company, announced its alliance with a newly launched insurance agency, Cogeris Insurance Group. In addition to Keystone Mutual as the preferred med-mal insurance, Cogeris offers a full portfolio of insurance – including med-mal, life, health and general liability – specialized for Missouri physicians.

“A successful medical practice today has to have an insurance partner that they can trust and who understands the changeable environment for physicians,” says Dr. Robert McMahon, a medical doctor, attorney and former president of the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society. “Cogeris is fulfilling a need that is long overdue in the Missouri market with their combination of experience and wide variety of specialized insurance products.”

The impetus for Cogeris arose out of a need for an agency which would broker a wider range of insurance products, but also with a deep understanding of the unique needs of physicians. All insurance options offered under Cogeris – med-mal, life, health and general liability – meet guidelines outlined by their board and are specific to physicians.

“With Cogeris, we have gathered the best minds and policy options in insurance – all with an earnest desire to best serve Missouri physicians,” says Jim Bowlin, who leads Cogeris and Keystone Mutual. “It is the only agency in the region to focus a wide range of insurance needs specifically for medical professionals, such as life and health,” he added.

Cogeris was launched using private funding. Its directors include McMahon, Bowlin, and Craig McPartlin, CFO of Keystone Mutual. The same team that is launching Cogeris was responsible for helping Keystone Mutual to achieve ranking on the St. Louis Business Journal list of “St. Louis’ Fastest Growing Companies.”
