Q&A: Reporting Medical Malpractice Payments

  1. How should a payment be reported to the NPDB if a total amount has not been determined and the payer is making an initial partial payment?

    Complete the MMPR screens according to the instructions in the IQRS. Note the amount of the first payment and, in the narrative section, explain that the total amount has not been determined and the first payment is a partial payment. When the final amount is determined, submit a Correction Report, update the "Total Amount Paid" section of the report, and explain the additional payment in the narrative section.
