Q&A: Reporting Medical Malpractice Payments

  1. Should a payment exclusively for the benefit of a clinic, hospital, or other health care entity be reported?

    No. Medical malpractice payments made solely for the benefit of a clinic, hospital, or other health care entity should not be reported to the NPDB. However, a payment made for the benefit of a professional corporation or business entity consisting only of a sole practitioner is reportable to the NPDB.
