The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) began in 1849 when 25 physicians united to advance medical science and to raise the standards for their profession. Today, the NCMS is more than 11,000 strong and champions the same goals and ideals. As the largest physician organization in the state, the North Carolina Medical Society devotes itself to representing the interests of physicians and protecting the quality of patient care.
Physician leaders of the NCMS formed Medical Mutual in 1975 in response to the escalating medical liability crisis. More than three decades later, we are still the only liability carrier endorsed by the NCMS.
The North Carolina Dental Society (NCDS) was founded in 1856.

Since 1988, Medical Security has been the only professional liability carrier endorsed by North Carolina's leading association of dentists.
