  • During the 1975 legislative session, Act 817 (R.S. 40:1299.41 et seq) was passed, creating the Louisiana Patient’s Compensation Fund (PCF). The Act was created to provide coverage to private healthcare providers in Louisiana, ensuring that a stable and affordable market existed for malpractice insurance to keep practitioners in the state. In addition, the Act was to create a viable fund for compensating claimants. The Act provides a statutory cap on total liability of $500,000 and payment of all related and ongoing medical expenses. It also provided for a Medical Review Panel process, which is the first step in pursuing a claim against a healthcare provider.

    Enrollment in the PCF is required to participate in The Trust Funds. The Trust Funds assesses and bills for the proper surcharge on behalf of the PCF.
