  1. The federally supported health centers assistance act of 1992 : an experiment in malpractice coverage.

    Article - En anglais

    Based on a claims experience that was extremely low and malpractice insurance rates that remained at « commercial » rates, the Congress concluded in 1992 that coverage of malpractice actions against these grantees and their health care practitioners would be more cost-effective under the Federal Tort Claims Act.

    This, in turn, would allow the grantees to apply the savings to providing health services to their beneficiaries.

    The lawmakers thereupon enacted a 3-year experiment in coverage of malpractice actions involving certain Public Health Service grantees.

    This article describes the background, structure, and administration of this statutory experiment.
