Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) Malpractice Coverage
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) considers Friends
of Family Health Center (FOFHC) and its providers as Public Health Services
employees, providing malpractice liability protection under the Federal
Tort Claims Act (FTCA). This coverage extends to FOFHC and its (1) officers;
(2) governing board members; (3) full- and part-time employees; and (4)
contractors who are licensed or certified individual health care practitioners.
FTCA coverage is similar to a "per occurrence" policy without
a limit on how much money is awarded. Therefore, any coverage limits that
may be mandated by other organizations are met.
