LITTLE ROCK, Ark., May 8, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Arkansas Mutual Insurance Company announced today that it will be joining Constellation, a mutual holding company, and its family of companies. Arkansas Mutual is a provider of medical professional liability insurance for physicians, located in Little Rock; it will be the third Constellation member company, joining MMIC and UMIA. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Corey Little, Arkansas Mutual's President and CEO, said: "We're excited to join Constellation. Arkansas Mutual's policyholders will benefit from a larger, well capitalized company that has a similar physician-focused culture, and from resources such as patient safety programs, physician support programs, and health IT services. And Arkansas Mutual's established network in Arkansas will help the two companies expand more quickly in this state."

Combined, MMIC, Arkansas Mutual and UMIA insure more than 20,000 health care providers in 16 states. All three serve the entire health care spectrum: physicians, clinics, large hospitals and health systems, and outpatient and long-term care facilities.

"A partnership between Arkansas Mutual and Constellation will provide benefits for both sides," said Bill McDonough, President and CEO at Constellation. "By helping Arkansas Mutual expand, we will be able to offer more financial and risk management services in support of the health care community. Together we can create stronger systems and processes, and drive efficiencies."

The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015 and is subject to customary due diligence, regulatory approvals and Arkansas Mutual policyholder approval.
