Coverage Verification & Claims History
Verification of FTCA Coverage for Individual Providers
To streamline this process, HRSA no longer uniformly provides separate written confirmation of medical malpractice coverage for covered individuals. Health centers are provided their Notice of Deeming Action (NDA), together with documentation confirming a covered individual's employment or contractor status with the deemed entity, to show liability coverage for damage for personal injury, including death, resulting from the performance of medical, surgical, dental, or related functions by Public Health Service (PHS) employees while acting within the scope of such employment.
HRSA does not provide a claims history for providers. We encourage you to carefully review both FTCA and relevant Health Center Program guidance found on Health Center Program Policies, including the Federal Tort Claims Act Health Center Policy Manual (PDF - 369 KB), Section II. Please check the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) for information regarding a type of claims history provided by NPDB.
