Reporting a Claim
When to Report a Claim
It is important that you notify the Claims Department whenever you become aware of an incident which you believe might reasonably lead to a claim against you, your group or your organization. Examples of reportable events are:
- Receipt of notice of a claim alleging medical malpractice, or one that may involve your general liability policy issued by CMIC.
- An adverse event during the treatment of a patient, or an encounter with a patient or family member where they express displeasure with the treatment provided.
- Receipt of a request for records or a subpoena.
- Receipt of a Lawsuit (Summons and Complaint - including Small Claims actions) naming you, your group or your organization as a Defendant.
