Do medical malpractice payers have to report payments made for the benefit of a deceased practitioner?
Yes. Medical malpractice payers must submit reports of payments made for the benefit of deceased practitioners because fraudulent practitioners may seek to assume the identity of a deceased practitioner. One of the principal objectives of the NPDB is to restrict the ability of incompetent practitioners to move from State to State without disclosing their previous damaging or incompetent performance.
