Q&A: Reporting Medical Malpractice Payments

  1. If an individual practitioner is not named, identified, or described in a medical malpractice claim or complaint, but the facility or practitioner group is named, should the payment be reported?

    No, with one exception. If the named defendant is a sole practitioner identified as a "professional corporation," a payment made for the professional corporation must be reported for the practitioner.
