Relying solely on the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) for protection from medical malpractice liability can leave your health center at risk. The federal government has tightened restrictions on what is covered by FTCA over the last few years. Therefore, many health centers are operating with gaps in their liability coverage. CHCIB offer a specialty product called "Medical Malpractice Liability Gap insurance" to protect the health center from those gaps.
The FTCA coverage requirements are complex and change frequently. Call us today to get started on a risk assessment. We'll look at your entire insurance program and make sure you're fully protected.
Common Gaps in FTCA Coverage:
Providers not covered by FTCA
Services not approved under the health center's Scope of Project
Locations not approved under the health center's Scope of Project
Services performed on people who are not patients of the health center
Compliance violations or gaps in FTCA deeming status
