Settled or Adjudicated Claim Reporting
All malpractice claims settled or adjudicated to final judgment against a health care provider should be reported to the Commissioner by the plaintiff's attorney and by the health care provider or his insurer or risk manager within 60 days following final disposition. The report should state the:
- Nature of the claim;
- Damages asserted and alleged injury;
- Attorney fees and expenses; and
- Amount of any settlement or judgment.

The Commissioner urges parties to immediately report claims considered closed or disposed of by the parties for any other reason (dismissed, withdrawn, dropped, etc.), so that the Department's file can be closed and accurately reflect the claim status.
