The South Carolina Patients' Compensation Fund was
created for the purpose of paying that portion of a medical malpractice
or *general liability claim, settlement, or judgment which is in excess
of two hundred thousand dollars for each incident or in excess of six
hundred thousand dollars in the aggregate year for one year. The Fund is
liable only for payment of claims against licensed health care providers
in compliance with the provisions of the Enabling Statute Title 38,
Chapter 79, Article 5 and includes reasonable and necessary expenses
incurred in payment of claims and the Fund's administrative expense.
*(The South Carolina Patients' Compensation Fund will no longer offer
Comprehensive General Liability coverage effective March 1, 2004 for any
new or renewal membership.)
Our mission is to ensure the stability and security of the South
Carolina Patientsí Compensation Fund for our members with sound
investment practices, rate adequacy, superior customer service and
risk management practices.
