Report a Claim
Claims happen. When they do, here are the steps you’ll need to take.
||Please have the following ready:
- Date, time and place of the alleged incident
- Clinical records
- Lawsuit or nature of the claim
||Secure the entire original patient chart.
Put all documentation in a safe place, including X-rays. Never change or alter clinical records in any way.
||Start a file for NCMIC documents.
Keep all correspondence and documents from NCMIC and/or your defense counsel as well as legal documents. Do not place any of these materials in the patient chart.
||Be prepared to commit your time to the defense of the claim.
The claim process can be lengthy. Your cooperation and involvement are necessary for the matter to be resolved in the most favorable manner. Rest assured, NCMIC will be there with you every step of the way to protect your name and reputation.
