Medical Malpractice

The Medical Malpractice division oversees the qualification of health care providers in the Patient's Compensation Fund under Indiana’s Medical Malpractice Act. This includes collecting surcharges, maintaining files of medical malpractice actions and records of qualified providers, and receiving proposed complaints. The Department cannot provide legal advice to parties involved; therefore, it is up to each party to advance or defend its own claim. Any questions or concerns may be directed to Meghann Leaird, Director of Dedicated Funds, at MeLeaird@idoi.IN.gov.
