The MIT Advantage & Eligibility
Since 1981, the South Carolina Medical Association Members’ Insurance Trust has provided members with exemplary health insurance and customer service. Our commitment to providing personalized service to our members is what sets us apart.
For over 170 years, SCMA has provided invaluable benefits and support to physicians and our member groups. Our health plan, administered by MIT, has been instrumental in providing SCMA members access to affordable health coverage, exemplary customer service, and other embedded benefits for nearly 40 years.
We offer a variety of plan designs to fit our members’ needs and health care priorities and do so at rates that are often lower those available on the commercial market. Through MIT, our members can access a host of additional benefits and coverage options, including life insurance, a retirement option, short-term disability insurance, and an employee assistance program.
A great insurance plan is only worthwhile if it is paired with outstanding customer service. At MIT, our team takes the time to cultivate relationships with each of our members. We take pride in addressing your specific needs and questions.
