A.M. Best Places Credit Ratings of Midrox Insurance Company Under Review with Positive Implications

OLDWICK, N.J.--()--A.M. Best has placed under review with positive implications the Financial Strength Rating of B+ (Good) and Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bbb-” of Midrox Insurance Company (Midrox) (Roxbury, NY).

The under review status follows a signed 100% quota share reinsurance agreement between Mid-Hudson Co-Operative Insurance Company (Mid-Hudson) (Montgomery, NY) and Midrox, anticipated to be effective Jan. 1, 2018, following state approval. Additionally, Mid-Hudson has assumed board control of Midrox with the majority of board members represented by Mid-Hudson. The reinsurance agreement is expected to improve the financial position of Midrox due to the implicit support from Mid-Hudson.
