A Review of the Medical Malpractice Patients' Compensation Fund
FOLLOW-UP (PDF) REPORT (PDF) SUMMARY (PDF)
As requested by members of the General Assembly, we conducted an audit of the Medical Malpractice Patients’ Compensation Fund (PCF). The requesters were concerned about the fund’s solvency and whether the state would be liable in the event of a default. A July 1999 informal opinion from the Attorney General’s office concluded that the state should not be liable for claims made against the PCF. However, we found that the PCF operates with a high level of risk.
