Indiana docs, hospitals to get payment break for malpractice fund

AP/Chicago Tribune, February 19, 2008
Patient's Compensation Fund surcharge rates in Indiana will be reduced 19 percent for doctors and 1 percent for hospitals starting March 1, 2008, according to the state Department of Insurance. The fund was established in 1976 to help compensate malpractice victims. Healthcare providers contribute to it on a voluntary basis, and the vast majority of Indiana's doctors participate.
