Medical Professional Liability Verification

Risk Management

The Risk Management team talks to health care providers, gathers information and submits medical malpractice claims to the WV Board of Risk and Insurance Management and AIG Claims Services. The staff monitors the costs associated with each medical malpractice claim, verifies accounting of the escrow account for the deductible amounts and reports on claims and costs on a regular basis. They also maintain a database of claims and suits, named defendants and case status to be able to answer insurance inquiries for WVU health care providers. The Team also deals with subpoenas and outside attorney requests of our providers and will gather information and help coordinate requests for testimony and depositions. The staff also provides risk management and other educational presentations at the HSC.
