Notice to Hospitals, Physicians, Dentists, Podiatrists, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Certified Nurse Anesthetists Unable to Obtain Medical Malpractice Insurance in the Voluntary Market
The Superintendent of Financial Services has, by regulation (Regulation No. 170), established the New York Medical Malpractice Insurance Plan (MMIP), to provide for the equitable distribution, of eligible health care providers and facilities unable to obtain insurance in the voluntary market, to authorized medical malpractice insurers.
Medical providers and facilities needing insurance, should first contact the insurers writing this coverage in the voluntary market. A list of those companies is posted on the Department of Financial Services Website, www.dfs.ny.gov. Individuals and facilities unable to obtain medical malpractice insurance in the voluntary market, and who have been declined by at least three insurers (or the number writing the coverage if less than three) may contact the MMIP at 212 576-9687.
