Navigate the State Patient Compensation Fund details.
In certain states, a portion of a physician’s malpractice insurance is provided through the State Patient Compensation Fund (PCF). Therefore, there are actually two entities protecting the policyholder — the insurance company and the state PCF. Why risk unnecessary costs or a potential gap in coverage? Learn how Sopyla can help guide you through the complex laws and regulations concerning Patient Compensation Funds (PCF’s).
For example, did you know that if you start to practice in Kansas sometimes you must first purchase tail coverage for your prior acts? Did you know that in some cases if you activate or inactivate certain state medical licenses you must amend your malpractice insurance and purchase tail coverage? Obviously, these are expenses that you want to avoid.
