Notice for FTCA Deemed Health Centers
If your health center is asked who your insurance carrier is for purposes of filing medical malpractice claims, you should respond - in writing whenever possible - by stating that the health center and many/all of its providers are deemed federal employees, with resultant coverage under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) for actions within the scope of deemed employment, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n). Accordingly, claims or notice of medical malpractice claims should be submitted by a claimant to the Office of General Counsel. Further, the health center should retain a copy of this correspondence in their office files, rather than in patient medical records.
Claims or notice of medical malpractice claims should be submitted by a claimant to the Office of General Counsel at the following address: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the General Counsel General Law Division 330 Independence Ave., S.W.
